The Brigham Young University Performing Arts Series welcomes the Utah Symphony conducted by Thierry Fischer with guest violinist Hilary Hahn to the de Jong Concert Hall Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for the general public, $17 for alumni and senior citizens, and $13 for students. They are available for purchase through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322, or at byuarts.com/tickets.
The program features the Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K.551, “Jupiter” by Mozart, the Adagio from the Symphony No. 10 in F-Sharp Major by Mahler and the Violin Concerto in D Major Op. 35 by Korngold.
Hahn’s probing interpretations, technical brilliance and commitment to new music and the commissioning process have not only made her one of the most sought-after artists of her generation, but also brought her love of classical music to a diverse audience.
Although only 32 years old, her international fame and recognition — including two Grammies, multiple Diapason “d'Or of the Year” and “Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik” prizes, and the 2008 Classic FM/Gramophone Artist of the Year award — are a testament to her talent and drive.
