Benaroya Hall

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto reminds us all: Every moment is precious. This flawless creation turns each simple gesture — even just one repeated note — into a profound event. Violinist Augustin Hadelich, a musician as heroic as he is sensitive, dispatches Beethoven’s immortal concerto with his “silvery tone, pinpoint intonation and surprising turns of phrase” (Los Angeles Times). In Gigues, images of carefree folk dancing are refracted through the dreamy glow of Debussy.

Morlot Conducts Ravel

Thursday, September 27 at 7:30pm
Friday, September 28 at 12:00pm
Saturday, September 29 at 8:00pm
Benaroya Hall

From the rapturous sunrise in Daphnis et Chloé to the sultry jazz tones in the Concerto in G, Ravel’s orchestral scores saturate the stage with extravagant colors. For these ornate French creations, the delight is in the details, and the details are never more vibrant than when Ludovic Morlot works within the perfect acoustics of Benaroya Hall. He joins forces with pianist Steven Osborne, “whose approach to Ravel combines clarity with heart” (The Guardian). Debussy’s Printemps offers an early glimpse of this imaginative composer. Marc-André Dalbavie, one of today’s leading contributors to that exquisite French tradition, honors his forebear Messiaen in La source d’un regard.

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1

Saturday, October 13 at 8:00pm
Sunday, October 14 at 2:00pm
Benaroya Hall

Resilience. Determination. Exultation. Schumann’s Second Symphony reminds us how humans, flaws and all, can overcome challenges with guts and grace. The pain and humiliation of a hand injury that ended his piano career led Schumann onto a symphonic path blazed by Beethoven, as heard in the fiery “Zwickau” Symphony. The willful streak that carried Beethoven through so much personal hardship was already well developed in the First Piano Concerto, his proud and unbending bid to fill the mighty large shoes of Mozart.

Handel was no stranger to spectacle, but he outdid himself in the Music for the Royal Fireworks, a pyrotechnic celebration of peace that still sizzles in the modern concert hall. The flip side of such heightened Baroque emotion is evident in Dido’s Lament, the heartbreaking death scene by Purcell.

Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 2

Thursday, November 1 at 7:30pm
Friday, November 2 at 12:00pm
Saturday, November 3 at 8:00pm
Benaroya Hall

The bravest artists are willing to stretch and scrabble toward truth and greatness. Brahms, in his First Symphony, crafts an ode to personal freedom, lifting his heavy burden of history and self-doubt. Bartók peers unflinchingly at the seedy underbelly of life in The Miraculous Mandarin, his outrageously colorful story of seduction and treachery. Russian-born violinist Alina Ibragimova brings total commitment to the music she plays. “The more I know about life,” she declared, “the more I feel, the more I can express.” She directs that awareness toward the clean, austere beauty of Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto.

Violinist Viktoria Mullova and cellist Matthew Barley bring a new work to Seattle, composed for them by Pascal Dusapin. The fanciful title of this double concerto, At Swim-Two-Birds, comes from a subversive Irish novel, but the composer’s sonic tradition is distinctly French, filled with the same joie de vivre that enlivens Debussy’s Petite suite.

Beethoven Symphony No. 5

Thursday, November 15 at 7:30pm
Saturday, November 17 at 8:00pm
Sunday, November 18 at 2:00pm
Benaroya Hall

Berlioz, the most inventive orchestral composer of his age, poured all the thrill and romance of the Eternal City into his Roman Carnival Overture. Boisterous dance music and swooning love songs bring this raucous festival to life. Where Berlioz piece is boisterous, Prokofiev’s Fifth Piano Concerto is coy like a cat, wriggling out of every preconception and cliché as it charts an original path through the minefield of history. Finally, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is a wholly different creature, one with forward drive and a unyielding fidelity. This marvel of symphonic craft submits its bold message with utter frankness, and yet there are always new subtleties waiting to be discovered.
