Kansas City Symphony Classical Series BRAHMS’ VIOLIN CONCERTO and BEETHOVEN’S FOURTH

Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center

Michael Stern, conductor

Vadim Gluzman, violinist

JOHN ADAMS The Chairman Dances – Foxtrot for Orchestra

BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 4

BRAHMS Violin Concerto

Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is filled with the intense drama associated with the composer as well as episodes revealing his keen sense of humor. Brahms composed his only Violin Concerto for the great Austro-Hungarian performer Joseph Joachim. A virtuoso of our time, Vadim Gluzman, performs this Mount Everest of the concerto repertoire with the Kansas City Symphony. Inspired by Madame Mao Zedong’s prior life as a movie actress, John Adams’ The Chairman Dances – Foxtrot for Orchestra represents a separate, musical response to his opera, Nixon in China. Tickets start at $25. For more information, please call the Symphony Box Office at (816) 471-0400 or visit
