Beethoven and Prokofiev
Kerson Leong, violin
Prokofiev: Concerto No. 2 in G minor
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A major
Andrei Feher’s fourth season as Music Director opens with impassioned gusto of timeless composers. Joined by Canadian Violinist Kerson Leong, Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 is both chilling and tender, filled with furiously virtuosic violin passages. The most exuberant of his symphonies, Beethoven’s visceral Symphony No. 7 has appealed to audiences since its première. A contrast between musical optimism and grave, sombre tones, it builds to the irrepressible whirling energy of the finale.
