Gil Shaham

Fans of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto rarely have to wait long for a live performance. But this week there’s the chance to hear two different interpretations of the popular work, thanks to the New World Symphony.

The orchestra has programmed the concerto twice in the coming days, once with an established star, then with a young violinist at the beginning of his career. The veteran soloist Gil Shaham will play the concerto 8 p.m. Saturday at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. Also on the program is Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, the “Pastoral.” Conducting will be Cristian Măcelaru, a graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, now conductor in residence of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Then next Monday at 8 p.m. the orchestra will play the same program at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach. Handling the solo part will be the young French violinist Arnaud Sussmann, a former teaching assistant to Itzhak Perlman.; 305-949-6722.; 800-572-8471.
