Kolja Blacher, leader and violin
Violinist Kolja Blacher returns to San Antonio to lead the orchestra from the concertmaster chair in a series of intimate and charming classical works. Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, an exquisite jewel for string orchestra sings in elegant phrases, and embraces a Russian flavor. With his Symphony No. 1 Beethoven introduced his own distinctive symphonic voice to the musical circles of Vienna, and Mozart’s “Turkish” Violin Concerto, famous for its brief episode of exotic Turkish elements, sparkles with wit.
Tchaikovsky Serenade in C major
Mozart Concerto No. 5 in A major for Violin and Orchestra, K. 219, “Turkish”
