Doors open 90 minutes before the concerts.
JAMES LOWE, CONDUCTOR
MATEUSZ WOLSKI, VIOLIN
Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto was at first deemed unplayable, but those who have mastered the demanding soloist’s part have brought to life the effortless flow of lyrical themes and Russian- inspired folk melodies that delight the listener. Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, which was not completed before his death, uses ever higher climatic peaks, multiple key changes and Wagner-inspired orchestration to create a vast musical monument and soul-expanding grandeur. Conductor Bruno Walter wrote of Bruckner, “Even though he may not follow a strictly planned path to his goal, he takes us over ways strewn with abundant riches, affording us views of constantly varying delight.”
Richard Wagner — Ride Of The Valkyries
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Violin Concerto
Anton Bruckner — Symphony No. 9
ATTEND THE LOWEDOWN WITH JAMES LOWE — THURSDAY, APR. 16, 12-1:30PM
