When the Ukrainian-born Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman appeared with Orpheus in 2011, The New York Times praised a performance that “balanced thoughtfulness and visceral power.” Gluzman will be performing on the very same 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivarius for which the Tchaikovsky concerto was composed. Mendelssohn’s symphonic recollections of Scotland fill the concert hall with splashes of local color while composer Michael Hersch reflects on sketches by artist Kevin Tuttle as he processes the impacts of physical illness and mortality.

Program:

MENDELSSOHN: SYMPHONY NO. 3, “SCOTTISH”
M. HERSCH: end stages (PREMIERE)
TCHAIKOVSKY: VIOLIN CONCERTO
