DVORÁK Scherzo capriccioso
MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto
RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances
Celebrate opening weekend of another fantastic season at the Kauffman Center with a fast-paced program, all in the impeccable acoustics of Helzberg Hall. Captivating, young violinist Stefan Jackiw is described by the Chicago Tribune as “… a legend in the making. He has flawless technique, precocious musical understanding, and a sweet, singing tone.” Dvorák’s energetic Scherzo capriccioso jump-starts the evening and, on the second half, enjoy Rachmaninoff’s thrilling Symphonic Dances — great music from a composer who wrote some of the most spontaneous works in the repertoire.
