Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Lisa Batiashvili - Violin
Berwald - Symphony No. 3 ("Sinfonie singulière")
Sibelius - Symphony No. 7
Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto
Yannick and Lisa Batiashvili have enchanted concert audiences all over the world; she returns to the Orchestra with Tchaikovsky's spectacular Violin Concerto anchoring two different programs over two weekends. This concert highlights Scandinavia: Sibelius's Seventh Symphony was a U.S. premiere for the Orchestra with Leopold Stokowski, long a champion of the Finnish master's works. And you may not be familiar with Sweden's Franz Berwald, but his beautiful Third Symphony, composed in 1845, makes a compelling pair with the Sibelius.
