The Philadelphia Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Violinist Lisa Batiashvili, “a vital and magnetic live performer [with] enormous promise and the inquiring mind with which to fulfill it” (The Guardian), joins Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra for a performance of Bartók’s lighthearted and lyrical First Violin Concerto, written while he was under the spell of his unrequited love for violinist Stefi Geyer. Also on the program is Bruckner’s majestic, unfinished Ninth Symphony.
