Event Info

Spend Memorial Day weekend with the New York Philharmonic and Augustin Hadelich (“a virtuoso out of the Golden Age … a young artist with no evident limitations” — The New Yorker) as they perform Dvořák’s beloved Violin Concerto, evoking the composer’s Bohemian heritage through its rustic vitality, lyrical folk melodies, a melancholy dumka, and a dazzling furiant. Janáček’s fierce, colorful Taras Bulba crowns this all-Czech program.
