Hilary Hahn, Brahms & Blomstedt 

Feb 26 - Mar 02
CYO
Three-time Grammy Award winner Hilary Hahn plays Brahms’s only Violin Concerto. Much more than a showpiece, it is a profound work of symphonic scale that redefined what a concerto could be. Legendary conductor Herbert Blomstedt also leads Schubert’s Sixth Symphony, in which the composer’s lyrical melodic writing is on full display.

Herbert Blomstedt Conductor

Noble, charming, sober, modest. Such qualities may play a major role in human coexistence and are certainly appreciated. However, they are rather atypical for extraordinary personalities such as conductors. Whatever the general public’s notion of a conductor may be, Blomstedt is an exception, precisely because he possesses those very qualities that seemingly have so little to do with a conductor’s claim to power. The fact that he disproves the usual clichés in many respects should certainly not lead to the assumption that he does not have the power to assert his clearly defined musical goals. Anyone who has attended Blomstedt’s rehearsals and experienced his concentration on the essence of the music, the precision in the phrasing of musical facts and circumstances as they appear in the score, the tenacity regarding the implementation of an aesthetic view, is likely to have been amazed at how few despotic measures were required to this end. Basically, Blomstedt has always represented that type of artist whose professional competence and natural authority make all external emphasis superfluous. His work as a conductor is inseparably linked to his religious and human ethos; accordingly, his interpretations combine great faithfulness to the score and analytical precision, with a soulfulness that awakens the music to pulsating life. In the more than 60 years of his career, he has acquired the unrestricted respect of the musical world.
