The Thu., Nov. 13 performance is followed by a free discussion with conductor Michael Christie and violinist Jennifer Koh.


Stravinsky – Symphonies of Wind Instruments

Bernstein – Serenade after Plato’s “Symposium” for solo violin, strings, harp, and percussion

Stravinsky – Pétrouchka (1947 version)

If love could be any instrument, it would be a soaring violin. Leonard Bernstein knew this when he chose the violin for Serenade, his classical and intimate conversation on love. The National Symphony Orchestra performs this elegant work with sensational violinist Jennifer Koh. She plays Bernstein’s discourse of the heart with “equal measures of energy and velvety richness,” says the New York Times. The concert is led by conductor Michael Christie in his NSO debut. Also on the program are two Stravinsky masterworks, Symphonies of Wind Instruments and his seminal piece, Pétrouchka.
