Brahms’ Violin Concerto was dedicated to dear friend and legendary violinist Joseph Joachim. James Ehnes, violin, is widely considered one of the most dynamic and exciting performers in classical music, performing in more than 30 countries on five continents and appearing regularly with many of the world's most well-known orchestras and conductors.

Also on the program, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 6 was dedicated to Hans Richter, who was the conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The four-movement piece was one of the first of Dvořák’s large symphonic works to draw international attention. In it, he manages to capture the Czech national style within a standard Germanic classical-romantic form.

Pre-concert activities in the North Plaza begin at 7 p.m.
