MTT opens NWS’ Arsht Center series with an exclusive evening featuring works by music’s defining Romantics. Hailed by Time magazine as “the outstanding American violinist of his generation,” Gil Shaham brings captivating lyricism and gypsy flair to Johannes Brahms’ only Violin Concerto with a “transfixing array of finesse and grit” (Orange County Register).  Alban Berg’s Three Pieces for Orchestra—what he called a “fictitious symphony”—is a kaleidoscope of vivid colors and textures, and contains nods to Gustav Mahler throughout. Robert Schumann’s tumultuous Overture forms the dramatic start to this unforgettable evening.
