GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich returns to the BPO to tackle Tchaikovsky’s dramatic and technically mesmerizing Violin Concerto. Zemlinsky’s lavishly scored underwater fantasy is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the mermaid who sacrifices herself out of unrequited love for a prince, and Fuch’s latest work is inspired by abstract expressionism’s ‘washes of color.’
