WIDMANN Violin Concerto
BRUCKNER Symphony No. 4, “Romantic”
Upheld as one of the Bruckner’s most famous works, his Symphony No. 4, the “Romantic,” builds with anticipation and tension that leads to triumph as the orchestra launches the listener into his fairytale world. Declared by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as “phenomenal, performing in a manner that had to be seen, as well as heard, to be believed.” Christian Tetzlaff returns to perform Widmann’s otherworldly and mystifying Violin Concerto.
