In this season finale, Stravinsky’s new world of sacred sound meets Dvořák’s reflections on his stay in the United States. Christian Tetzlaff, who makes music ‘live, breathe and sing with a directness few can equal today’ (The Guardian), is the soloist in Mendelssohn’s evergreen concerto.
#Christian Tetzlaff’s visit is supported through the Marc and Eva Besen International Guest Chair.
