San Diego Symphony's Jacobs Masterworks with Augustin Hadelich

On October 4th, 5th, and 6th the San Diego Symphony hosted Jacobs Masterworks 13-14 with a special performance by violinist Augustin Hadelich. Beautifully directed by Jahja Ling the overall performance was full of exciting peaks and valleys that kept the audience in suspense. As the Barber Violin Concerto blazed through pieces at a lightning pace one could almost see the sparks fly in a crazed display of artistic fury.

Director Jahja Ling is originally of Chinese descent but has migrated to the U.S. His experience is broad and he has received acclaim in Europe and America. Much time was spent being a guest conductor at a large range of different locations and places. At present he is settled in the San Diego Symphony and is drawing large crowds. You may listen to his numerous recordings on his official page HERE 

Violinist Augustin Hadelich was born of German descent in Italy. His family has a long history in music. A family fire burned a great portion of his upper body but he soon moved to playing music with even more passion than before. He plays on a loaned 1723 Ex-Kiesewetter Stradivari violin that is seen as one of the sweet sounding violins in the world. Augustin’s experience is wide, even at his young age, and is in high demand. You may learn more about him and his music HERE 

The San Diego Symphony has been serving the San Diego population for over a hundred years. Like its years in service it also provides over 100 shows within any given calendar year. Like all great theaters it doesn’t simply offer music but also other productions. Of particular interest is the upcoming Phantom of the Opera (1925) production.
