First Concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic Noah Bendix-Balgley is a true master of the violin. His intensely personal sound and gift of communication through music connects him with audiences in a meaningful way. In this program, Noah appears as a composer as well as violinist, soloing in his own “Fidl-Fantazye: A Klezmer Concerto for Violin and Orchestra,” a work transforming authentic Klezmer music into an exhilarating violin concerto. This December concert also embraces the holiday season with Giuseppe Torelli’s Christmas Concerto and the German modern Romantic Hans Gal’s reinterpreting of “The Magic Mirror,” a Christmas Fairy play in five scenes by Karl Erich Jaroschek: a magical concert to get you into the holiday spirit.
