Philippe Quint • The Red Violin
Esplanade Concert Hall
The Red Violin, Concerto for Violin and Orchestra
- Intermission -
Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93
A Journey Across Time and Music
The now classic 1998 film The Red Violin traces the life of a magnificent, haunted violin in a tale spanning over 300 years. Our storyteller in this concert is the much-lauded Russian-American violinist Philippe Quint, “a fiddle virtuoso whose many awards are fully justified by the brilliance of his playing.” (Chicago Tribune). Completing the programme, the SSO’s Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Litton contrasts Bernstein’s vibrant Candide Overture to the brooding strains and defiant turmoil of Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony.
...one of the most accurate violin virtuosos I have ever heard — and one of the most untiring. - New York Arts on Philippe Quint

If you're a fan of Bernstein or Shostakovich, the additional Corigliano makes this a 20th century programme not to be missed.
