      EVENT DETAILS
      Masterworks 5: Kodály, Dvořák, Beethoven

      The three very distinct composers presented on this concert all found great inspiration in connecting with their roots. Zoltan Kodály's Dances of Galánta are a collection of village dances reimagined as a symphonic work and transformed with colors of the modern symphony orchestra. Next, Alexi Kenney, winner of the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, brings his unique perspective to Dvorak’s Violin Concerto — full of lyricism inspired by the rich Czech folkloric tradition. The concert’s centerpiece is Beethoven’s beloved "Pastoral" symphony, which was inspired by the composer’s love of the countryside.
      Program:
      Kodály: Dances of Galánta
      Dvořák: Violin Concerto
      Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”
      Mei-Ann Chen, guest conductor
      Alexi Kenney, violin
