Augustin Hadelich, violin
Beethoven     Violin Concerto
Mahler           Symphony No. 1, “Titan”
2016 Grammy winner, German-born, American-trained violinist Augustin Hadelich brings both “fast-fingered virtuosity” and “musicality and free-wheeling fantasy that cannot be taught” (The New Yorker) to the immortal Beethoven Violin Concerto. The season’s closing program also features Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing, summoning expanded forces of the San Antonio Symphony in one of his signature works, Gustav Mahler’s elemental Symphony No. 1, “Titan,” which Mahler called “music in search of a victory!”

Families can receive up to 50 percent off using promo code: BEETHOVEN here.
