Soloist: Arnaud Sussmann, violin

With a beautiful sound and elegance reminiscent of great violinists of the past, Arnaud Sussman solos on Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 (Turkish), one of Mozart’s most popular works. Sussmann performs on a 1760 Landolfi violin. Landolfi is widely considered one of the top luthiers in history, along with Stradivarius and Guarneri.

Nearly 10 years after its premiere, George Balanchine later choreographed Hindemith’s work for the New York City Ballet, then titled Metamorphoses.

We finish the afternoon with “Overture to Oberon,” which made its 20th century debut with the Metropolitan Opera premiere in 1918.

Repertoire:

  • Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219 (Turkish) – W. A. Mozart
  • Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber – Paul Hindemith
  • Overture to Oberon, J. 306 – Carl Maria von Weber

A pre-concert lecture about the repertoire by Dr. Ryan Dudenbostel starts at 2:15. Admission is free; but these are very popular, and fill fast!
