St. Louis Symphony Orchestra violinist Hannah Ji performs Joseph Bologne’s Violin Concerto with the SLSO on Friday at 10:30am and Saturday at 8pm. Hannah spoke with Classic 107.3 host Kathy Lawton Brown about the remarkable work.
From the SLSO website:
Celestial music by Saariaho opens the program led by conductor Jonathan Heyward in his SLSO debut. SLSO violinist Hannah Ji performs music by Bologne, an early Black composer for the symphony orchestra. We exit through the art gallery—Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is an epic tour of musical paintings and vibrant orchestral colors. For more information and tickets, visit slso.org.
