This Saturday, January 11 at 8:00 PM at the beautiful The Adrienne Arsht Center a special concert took place
The New World Symphony with guest violinist Hilary Hahn. The young virtuoso played Mozart's violin concerto No 5, "Turkish", under the baton of James Gaffigan.
The program also included Verdi's Overture to the Sicilian Vespers and Prokofiev Symphony No 5
This concert marks the debut of world renowned violinist Hilary Hahn, who recently was successful in compiling and recording 27 ancors that she herself selected from submissions from more than 200 composers.
Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn makes her debut with the New World Symphony during this enormous Arsht Center concert. The internationally recognized young virtuoso masterfully captured the emotions of Mozart’s “Turkish” violin concerto in between reprisals of Verdi’s Overture to The Sicilian Vespers and Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5.
I was also very impressed with the talented conductor James Gaffigan, who shows a carismatic personality, he is energetic and precise, he conducts the orchestra with elegant movements that dance with the music. Gafigan seems to have a very good understanding with the orchestra and the New World Symphony fellows played with energy and enthusiasm.
The Prokofiev Symphony No 5 was the perfect piece to close the program, the conductor and orchestra impressed the audience who offered a standing ovation
Bravo for the New World Symphony always better and better..
