It wasn't bad reviews, but bad housekeeping that kept Reynaldo Hahn's Violin Concerto from public performance for the last 60 years. That will change tonight when Henryk Szeryng, the Polish-born violinist from Mexico who discovered the long-lost score in a musty old Venezuelan library, performs the work with the Atlanta Symphony. The concerto was performed publicly once--in Paris in 1928--before the score disappeared, only to resurface after Hahn died in 1947. Misplaced again, the score was rediscovered by the 69-year-old Szeryng in December, 1984, but illness kept him from performing the piece until now.
