Eisenhower Auditorium

The Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, created in 1957, plays an important role in the cultural life of Germany and the rest of Europe. Englishman Jeffrey Tate, music director of Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Italy, and chief conductor of the Hamburg Symphony since 2008, guides the orchestra on its second tour of the United States. Israeli-born violinist Guy Braunstein, who trained with Pinchas Zuckerman, joins the orchestra in a performance of Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major. In 2000 Braunstein, who has performed at the world’s most prestigious venues, became the youngest concertmaster in the history of the Berlin Philharmonic. The Hamburg Symphony program also features Ralph Vaughan Williams’ overture from the symphonic suite The Wasps and Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 in D minor.
