David Geffen Hall
10 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023
The New York Philharmonic's artist-in-residence and multi-award-winning violinist Leonidas Kavakos gets a chance to shine with his performance of Brahms's formidable -- and popular -- Violin Concerto, which features a perfect melding of bravura passages, serene melodies and Gypsy folk rhythms. Plus the orchestra will also perform the New York premieres of Esa-Pekka Salonen's magical "Wing on Wing", called "unabashedly beautiful and introspective" by the "Los Angeles Times", and Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir's "Aeriality". Alan Gilbert wields the baton for this spring concert at David Geffen Hall.
