Meet Augustin Hadelich, the 29-year-old Italian-born son of German parents. On his new album he pairs two searching, seemingly disparate violin concertos — one classic and one contemporary. In the opening movement of Concentric Paths, Hadelich walks more than a tightrope. He circles and swoops in the very highest register of the violin, above the roiling orchestra. {Photo: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/legalcode}
