The haunting melody that opens Mendelssohn’s Violin concerto is instantly recognizable. Be there for a virtuosic performance of this revered work by violinist Benjamin Baker. Also, Tianyi Lu conducts Tchaikovsky’s gut-wrenching Fifth Symphony, which takes us on a passionate journey from self-doubt to triumph, building to a triumphant finish.
