Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra with Leonidas Kavakos

When: Wed., April 13, 7:30 p.m. 2016

The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has an illustrious history of collaborating with many of the greats from the mid-twentieth century on. This show, however, showcases late romanticism. On the first half is Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s 1945 violin concerto, which repurposes themes from some of his film soundtracks. It’s a boisterous affair that pairs perfectly with Mahler’s fifth symphony, which starts with a desolate funeral march with a soaring trumpet solo and flies everywhere from there. Mahler’s vision is truly cinematic in scope, with a huge range of moods, characters, and conflicts. —Dan Ruccia
