The awe-inspiring Sarah Chang, recognized as one of the world’s great violinists, performs the Barber Violin Concerto, music saturated with warmth and joy—and a large dose of dazzling virtuosity. Jakub Hrůša, hailed by Gramophone as one of 10 young conductors “on the verge of greatness,” makes his CSO debut leading music of his countrymen: the tumultuous Sárka from Smetana’s beloved symphonic poem and the most nationalistic of Dvořák’s symphonies, the irresistible Symphony No. 6.
