Russian Titans: Prokofiev & Tchaikovsky
Rune Bergmann conductor
Jennifer Frautschi violin
Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2 in g minor, Op. 63
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 in e minor, Op. 64
Acclaimed violinist Jennifer Frautschi returns to New Mexico for Prokofiev’s lyrical, sweet, and soaring Violin Concerto No. 2. The Austin Chronicle said “Frautschi conjured a character of immense complexity and contradictions, an Anna Karenina of the strings.” Compelling Norwegian conductor Rune Bergmann is also back for this marvelous night of Russian masterworks, including Tchaikovsky’s adored, intense, and joyous Symphony No. 5.
