Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto (Canceled)

Canadian violinist Blake Pouliot stars in Felix Mendelssohn’s beloved concerto – one of the most dazzling showpieces in the repertoire. Richard Strauss’ cheeky Till Eulenspiegel is a perennial audience favorite, while two pieces by Anna Clyne and Claude Debussy round out the program with dreamlike stories of nocturnal abandon.
