Tonight through Monday, phenom fiddler Viviane Hagner teams up with our hometown orchestra to perform a violin concerto she has championed since offering its world premiere in 2002. Created by Korean-born, Berlin-based composer Unsuk Chin, this utterly unique work manages to fit snugly within the western classical tradition while also reflecting a passion for electronic music and 21st-century sonic complexities. Those in attendance will never hear anything like it again. As if that weren't enough, the evening's program kicks off with the very first symphony from Beethoven and concludes with Robert Schumann's majestic Symphony No. 3, whose finale never disappoints.
