Come hear the piece that embodies and inspired the Winter Festival: Dvořák’s Ninth. Chloë Hanslip, praised by BBC Music Magazine for her “panache, poise and laser-like accuracy,” will shine in Austrian emigré Korngold’s resplendent violin concerto.

  • BRITTEN Simple Symphony
    Nimble and exuberant, this piece draws on music the British master wrote as a student.

  • KORNGOLD Violin Concerto
    Technically demanding, yet warm and richly expressive. Korngold conquered Hollywood with film music in this vein, a precursor to the scores of John Williams.

  • DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”
    Written during his time in the United States, Dvořák’s glorious magnum opus was inspired by Native American melodies and African-American spirituals.
