Returning to the US for the first time since 2012, the Bamberg Symphony of Germany performs on tour with Christoph Eschenbach conducting, and with violin soloist Ray Chen performing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. With more than 50 years of musical collaboration between them, Eschenbach and Bamberg display both the orchestra’s historical distinction and its contemporary outlook, embodied in the young violinist, a protégé of the conductor. The concert also features Mahler's Symphony No. 5.
