CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Munich Philharmonic

Valery Gergiev, Leonidas Kavakos by Marco Borggreve
This program’s virtuosity is thrilling and its intensity will keep you on the edge of your seat. Jörg Widmann’s Con brio is an orchestral showpiece that bustles with energy and wittily tips its hat to Beethoven. Brahms’s Violin Concerto is vigorous—especially in its solo pyrotechnics and gypsy-accented finale—and luxurious in its gorgeous melodies and richly sonorous orchestration. Shostakovich’s symphony is a profoundly personal work: a journey from despair to triumph filled with haunting beauty and flashes of the macabre that culminates in a rousing finale.
