This week's broadcast combines strands of the Austro-German tradition. Alan Gilbert conducts the rich-textured Passacaglia (Op. 1) of Anton Webern and two endlessly popular works by Brahms: his Symphony No. 4 and the Violin Concerto, the latter featuring soloist Pinchas Zukerman. Gilbert calls Zukerman "a consummate musician" whose violin playing is "absolutely soulful and deeply expressive."
