Palau de la Música


Carlos Simon Wake up - Concerto for Orchestra

Erich Wolfgang Korngold Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, op. 35

Dmitri Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, op. 47


Hilary Hahn is much loved by her fans for her innovative approach to classical music and eagerness to share her experiences with the global community. Artist-in-Residence with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and at London's Wigmore Hall, she also makes many solo appearances. A firm advocate of new music, she has commissioned numerous works from current composers. She has won many awards and distinctions, and in 2023 she was named Artist of the Year at the 62nd Annual Musical America Awards.

On this occasion we will see her under the baton of Gianandrea Noseda, one of the most sought-after conductors. Noseda has led the National Symphony Orchestra (Washington, D.C.) for the last six years and he has also been music director of the Zurich Opera since 2021. He has conducted the world’s foremost orchestras, such as the Berlin Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, as well as appearing at the most prestigious festivals and opera houses.

Founded in 1931, the National Symphony Orchestra (Washington, D.C.) has always stood for artistic excellence and music education. Its 2019 performance with Gianandrea Noseda at Carnegie Hall was described as “spectacular” by the New York Times.

They will play a programme featuring the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, a composer especially admired today for his essential contribution to the Hollywood film music of the 1930s and 1940s. The work is dedicated to Alma Mahler, the widow of his childhood mentor, Gustav Mahler. In addition, we will be able to enjoy Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 and a commissioned work by the American composer Carlos Simon.
