Experience the wild abandon of Beethoven’s Seventh (Wagner called it “the apotheosis of the dance itself”). Mendelssohn’s beloved masterpiece — “the heart’s jewel” among German violin concertos, declared a contemporary — will yield its emotional riches when played by Julia Fischer. Our concert opens with Prokofiev’s charming First Symphony, its “Classical” inspiration provided by Haydn.
