Beethoven and Sibelius
Naples Philharmonic Masterworks

Naples Philharmonic
Andrey Boreyko
, conductor
Augustin Hadelich, violin

Arvo Pärt — Swansong
Sibelius — Violin Concerto
Beethoven — Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”

Andrey Borekyo and the Naples Philharmonic perform Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony, which musically depicts some of the lyrical sounds and impressions of a day in the country. Beethoven described this beloved symphony as “more an expression of feeling than painting” though each movement represents a specific scene from the countryside, including the powerful thunder and lightning of an afternoon storm. Also on the program, the masterful violinist Augustin Hadelich returns to perform Sibelius’ Violin Concerto, which bristles with beauty, energy and urgency.

Prelude at 7pm
All Masterworks tickets include same-day admission to the The Baker Museum. Museum hours on day of performance: 10am-8pm. In addition, the doors to Hayes Hall will open 90 minutes prior to this performance. Arrive early to enjoy the exhibitions and light fare at Heidi's Place.

Tickets start at $29

The January 7 performance is generously sponsored by Jeanette Montgomery Evert and Herbert P. Evert.

Now in his eighth and final season as music director of Artis—Naples, Andrey Boreyko’s inspiring leadership has raised the artistic standard of the Naples Philharmonic. Andrey concludes his tenure as music director by continuing to explore connections between art forms through interdisciplinary thematic programming. Significant projects he has led include pairing Ballet Russes-inspired contemporary visual artworks of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave with performances of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and The Firebird, as well as commissioning a series of compact pieces by composers including Giya Kancheli to pair wiCth an art exhibition featuring small yet personal works by artists such as Picasso and Calder that were created as special gifts for the renowned collector Olga Hirshhorn.

The 2021-22 season marks Andrey’s third season as music and artistic director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. Their planned engagements this season include performances at the Eufonie Festival, the final and prizewinners’ concerts of the 18th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw and the orchestra’s 120th birthday celebration.

Augustin Hadelich

Augustin Hadelich

Augustin Hadelich is one of the greatest violinists of our time. From Adès to Paganini, Brahms to Bartók, he showcases a wide-ranging and adventurous repertoire, and he is often referred to by colleagues as a “musician’s musician.” Named Musical America’s 2018 Instrumentalist of the Year, he is consistently cited for his phenomenal technique, soulful approach and insightful interpretations in solo appearances around the world.

Hadelich’s career took off when he won the Gold Medal at the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Since then, he has garnered an impressive list of honors, including an Avery Fisher Career Grant, a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in the U.K., Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award, the inaugural Warner Music Prize, a Grammy® Award, an honorary doctorate from the University of Exeter in the U.K. and Musical America’s 2018 Instrumentalist of the Year.

Born in Italy to German parents, Hadelich is now a U.S. citizen. He holds an Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School, where he was a student of Joel Smirnoff. He plays the 1723 “Ex-Kiesewetter” Stradivari violin, on loan from Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
