GERSHWIN: An American in Paris BARBER: Violin Concerto RAVEL: Tzigane VARÈSE: Amériques Concert Duration: Approx. 1 hour, 55 minutes with intermission. What’s interesting about this concert: • American composer George Gershwin’s jazzy postcard from France contrasts French composer Edgard Varèse’ raucous reflection of America. • Grammy-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich shares playing technique “revealing something from a plane beyond ours” (Washington Post). • After the lyrical first movements of Barber’s concerto weren’t thought challenging enough, the composer responded with a finale believed unplayable.
