Znaider is a performer whose virtuosity never gets in the way of his passion. As he puts it, “I feel I have something to say, and I can say it best with a violin in my hand.” On this concert, Znaider brings his individual voice to Tchaikovsky’s grandly Romantic concerto, sharing the stage with Iván Fischer, who makes his debut with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
