In 1945, the Munich Symphony was founded to serve its citizens through music and today remains the heart of the orchestra’s mission. For this appearance, the orchestra brings Beethoven’s epic Fifth Symphony. Also, violinist Robert McDuffie plays Brahms’s impassioned Violin Concerto. “One of the finest violinists of our age,” declares The Buffalo News. “He played with great clarity and precision.”
