Brahms: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77
Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 in e minor, Op. 95, “From the New World”
If there’s one sizzling-hot violinist tearing up the classical music scene right now – it’s Chicago native Jennifer Koh. She’s appeared with leading orchestras around the world, and at New Mexico’s own Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. See her virtuosic performance of the rhythmic, driving, and delectable Brahms Violin Concerto! Also, perhaps the greatest work to capture and convey the American spirit – Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony!
