Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s breathe fresh life into favorites by Mozart and Brahms. The passionate Symphony No. 40 in G Minor is a window into Mozart’s anguished final years of financial ruin, though with plenty of Mozartian light to balance out the darkness. Brahms wrote the Violin Concerto in D Major for his lifelong friend Joseph Joachim, one of the great violinists of the 19th century. It’s a perfect vehicle for guest violinist Isabelle Faust, whose understated virtuosity is well-suited to everything from the fireworks of its allegro movements to its graceful adagio. Faust brings to the stage a historically informed sensibility, staying true to the music’s original intent while infusing it with an elegant spirit that’s entirely her own.
