Beethoven Symphony No.6 Pastoral
Brahms Violin Concerto

Rafael Payare Conductor
Viviane Hagner Violin

Brahms’ sweet, songful Violin Concerto will be performed by violinist Viviane Hagner, who has been engaged as a replacement for Alina Ibragimova who has withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances.
