Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is always an audience favorite, especially in the hands of artist-in-residence Augustin Hadelich, a rising star whose recent performance of this work were deemed “a compelling interpretation that effortlessly and naturally combines fiery passion, sensual sound and virtuosic elegance.” Juanjo Mena, who blew audiences away in his CSO debut in 2012, completes the experience with a propulsive, dance-like program including Ginastera’s thrilling Panambí, which the composer derived from the native music of his home country of Argentina and which strongly evokes Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
