ABOUT THIS CONCERT
He was the original showman—and Paganini’s bag of musical tricks knows no limit in his Violin Concerto No. 1, a work of mind-blowing virtuosity that pushes the instrument to its very limits. Performing it is not for the faint of heart, but when it comes to daredevil violin feats, Grammy Award winner Augustin Hadelich has a knack for making it look easy. Visions of the Eternal City are brushed with a palette of infinite color in Respighi’s glittering tone poems.
