New World Symphony: Gil Shaham and Brahms at ARSHT

Sat 24 Feb, 2018

Gil Shaham, whom Time magazine hailed as “the outstanding American violinist of his generation,” makes a welcome return to the Adrienne Arsht Center with Spanish conducting sensation Pablo Heras-Casado. Perfectly showcasing Shaham’s exquisite virtuosity, Béla Bartók’s Second Violin Concerto spins Hungarian folk music into a fiery, gypsy-like trance.

Johannes Brahms, classical music’s favorite Romantic, confidently steps out of Beethoven’s shadow with a rich panorama of endless heart-warming and heart-wrenching moments in his Third Symphony, one of the genre’s greatest hits. Indulge in the lushness of Franz Liszt’s famous tone poem Les Préludes, as themes of love, destiny and war form a grand triumph.
