Violinist Augustin Hadelich plays Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto, a moving elegy to lost friends and heros of the Spanish Civil War. And it took 30 years for William Walton to bring the parlor entertainment of Façade to the concert hall. Originally created as accompaniment to poems by Dame Edith Sitwell, Façade is still a sort of crazy scandal — mocking and absurd — but audiences still eat it up!
