CHRISTOPH KÖNIG conductor
SIMONE PORTER violin

Audiences and NJSO musicians agree: Christoph König is a favorite guest conductor. His November 2018 concerts were a triumph, and we couldn’t wait to bring him back for Bruckner’s magnificent Sixth Symphony. Bonus: the NJSO debut of a young American violinist who’s taking the world by storm.

MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto
This is the diamond in the crown of violin concertos, with sparkling melodies and quicksilver beauty in every bar. Simone Porter, only in her early 20s, has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times for playing that is “lovingly lyrical, occasionally frisky. She is clearly on the cusp of a major career.”

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 6
Bruckner was a church organist by day, but when he took up his composing pen at night, he opened a whole new world of orchestral splendor. His Sixth Symphony begins with violins playing so softly you may miss them; then, a mysterious horn call sounds, and suddenly the whole orchestra sweeps you away.

MOZART Overture to The Magic Flute
Hear the majesty and magic of Mozart’s final opera—a fantastical tale of mystery, adventure and love—distilled into this glowing overture.
