WQXR brings you a live broadcast of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra from Carnegie Hall on Saturday, January 29 at 8pm. Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman joins Orpheus for the first time in a performance of Prokofiev’s hauntingly beautiful Violin Concerto No. 2. Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki’s dark and romantic Serenade brings a distinctive Eastern-European flavor to the program, which also includes a Schumann overture and Brahms’ Serenade No. 2 in A major.
