When the Ukrainian-born Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman appeared with Orpheus in 2011, The New York Times praised a performance that “balanced thoughtfulness and visceral power.” Gluzman will be performing on the very same 1690 “ex-Leopold Auer” Stradivarius for which the Tchaikovsky concerto was composed. Mendelssohn’s symphonic recollections of Scotland fill the concert hall with splashes of local color and long-lost folk melodies, while composer Michael Hersch reflects on sketches by artist Kevin Tuttle as he processes the impacts of physical illness and mortality.
