Doors open 90 minutes before the concerts.
JAMES LOWE, CONDUCTOR
MATEUSZ WOLSKI, VIOLIN
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 — "The Ride Of The Valkyries" from Die Walküre
“The Ride of the Valkyries” originally portrayed eight warrior-princesses carrying slain heroes to the realm of the gods. Today, most people know “The Ride” from the Bugs Bunny classic 1957 cartoon, What’s Opera, Doc? and an unforgettable scene from the 1979 film Apocalypse Now.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto was at first deemed unplayable, but it has become one of most beloved concertos in the violin repertoire.
Anton Bruckner — Symphony No. 9
Bruckner did not finish his Ninth Symphony before his death, but its length and Wagner-inspired orchestration create a vast musical monument that needs no addition.
