A violin lover’s dream come true. Praised for his “warm, liquid sound” (New York Times), Pinchas Zukerman puts his virtuosic gifts on display with Beethoven’s exquisite Violin Concerto, a favorite of the legendary Isaac Stern, who brought the rising star to study at Juilliard in 1962. The concert opens with The Fiddler’s Child, a riveting tale of the supernatural. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 glows with warmth and humanity, culminating in a cheery, energetic finale. Tickets for this Kansas City Symphony concert start at $25.
