Christoph Eschenbach returns to the OSM, joined by the astonishing violinist Augustin Hadelich in Alban Berg’s Concerto “To the Memory of an Angel,” a contemplative work dedicated to the daughter of Alma Mahler, who tragically died at a young age. Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7 brings a complete change of atmosphere, with its powerful rhythmic impetus and its surges of infectious joy.
