Music is Life and, like it, inextinguishable.” (A duel between two sets of timpani in the finale is a highlight!) This intriguing program also features Simone Lamsma, a rising star violinist with technique to burn, performing Britten’s Violin Concerto—music that is at once tender and lyrical, spirited and passion-filled.
