- Elgar Violin Concerto
Before embarking on his revolutionary Third Symphony, Beethoven penned the light-hearted Second Symphony, a cheerful work harkening back to the glory of Mozart. Maestro Zukerman leads the enthusiastic work before stepping forward as one of the preeminent interpreters of Elgar’s brilliant Violin Concerto to perform with rising Latin American star Christian Vazquez conducting. A product of Venezula’s revolutionary educational program, El Sistema, Vazquez is quickly becoming known for his precision, determination, and electrifying work on the podium.
