Adam Fischer and Leonidas Kavakos

Dark tones in every shade dominate the beginning of this concert. For example, Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto, written in memory of the 19-year-old Manon Gropius, is one of the most poignant works of Modernism. Anton Webern’s delicate Passacaglia was written with the death of the composer’s own mother still fresh in his mind. In contrast to these is Antonín Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony From the New World with its folkloric cheerfulness and ingenious combination of American and Bohemian idioms.
