Fun Facts

  • Hadelich was named Musical America’s 2018 Instrumentalist of the Year and is often heralded for his phenomenal technique, soulful approach and insightful interpretations in solo appearances around the world.
  • Named Musical America’s 2014 Conductor of the Year, Heras-Casado has a varied and broad-ranging career, which includes appearances with both opera companies and symphony orchestras around the globe.
  • Hadelich, who will be playing his own cadenza for the Britten Violin Concerto at these performances, offers the following thoughts on the concerto: “Benjamin Britten was a passionate pacifist and poured his anguish about the suffering of the Spanish civil war (which raged from 1936 until 1939) into this piece. I think Britten’s concerto can be heard almost programmatically. The first movement is the idyllic Spain before the conflict, the second movement depicts the war and its cadenza the human pain and suffering. Then the moving and deeply personal third movement is about Britten himself trying to come to terms with what happened, with moments of mourning, moments of denial, and finally a glimmer of hope.”
