7:30 pm Verizon Hall
Grammy-winner and Artist-in-Residence Hilary Hahn returns to Verizon Hall with a 20th-century masterpiece: Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto, written as the Russian Revolution swirled in 1917. Maestro Denève offers another Philadelphia premiere from Guillaume Connesson, his Flammenschrift (Flaming Letters), a tribute to German music. Equally worthy of tribute: Richard Strauss's spiritual Death and Transfiguration and Ravel's whirling La Valse, described by the composer as “dancing on the edge of a volcano.”
