Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Violin Concerto has it all — sweeping melodies, virtuosic fireworks, and a heart-warming canzonetta that will fill your soul. We open with Johannes Brahms’s contemplative overture and then experience the world premiere of Puerto Rican-born composer Angélica Negrón’s first-ever symphony.
