Two beloved masterpieces by towering composers fill out this concert, led by the boundlessly energetic Andrew Manze. Esteemed violinist Thomas Zehetmair performs Beethoven’s trailblazing Violin Concerto, notable for demanding both endurance and virtuosity from its soloist. Mozart’s searching Symphony No. 40, the second of his exquisite final three symphonies, closes the program.
Pre-concert recital: Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson performs Beethoven’s Sonata No. 30 in E minor, Op. 109.
