Gil Shaham Performs Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with the DsO

Jan. 16-18
Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 pm

Tchaikovsky sets his tone poem of forbidden passion in the Inferno — where Francesca and her lover Paolo suffer for their transgressions. Raging, turbulent music reflects both their love and their agony. But this concert also offers happier fare: Gil Shaham performs Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with its tapestry of Bohemian folk melodies and dances. Plus, Prokofiev’s delightful First Symphony, “Classical” inspiration compliments of Haydn.
