In what is certain to be a memorable performance, Louis Langrée leads the Festival Orchestra in two symphonies—Mozart’s First, composed when he was just eight, and Schubert’s powerful “Tragic”—before the peerless Joshua Bell takes the stage to perform in Brahms’s Violin Concerto.
Performance begins promptly at its scheduled time. There is no late seating.
For Avery Fisher Hall stage seating, all patrons must be seated by 7:55.
This performance is approximately one hour and 50 minutes long, with one intermission.
