This week’s Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra concert brings us a fiery all-French program with works by Saint-Saëns and Lalo. Guest conductor Christoph König and violinist Chee-Yun, both absent from the stage of Kodak Hall for many years, have returned to chat with WXXI Music Director Julia Figueras about these passionate pieces, exotic influences, and whether memorizing is all that important.
