American composer John Corigliano’s Chaconne headlines an evening of music that abounds with passion and grace. Written for the haunting film The Red Violin, it updates a Baroque dance form perfectly characterized by Buxtehude’s work originally for organ. Mendelssohn’s most popular symphony, the “Italian,” closes a program that includes the Eugene returns of noted young American conductor Tito Muñoz and English violinist Chloë Hanslip.
