The Big Deal: Dallas Symphony Orchestra Presents Brahms Violin Concerto

by Gila Espinoza 6 Nov 2013 8:30 AM

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform Johannes Brahms only Violin Concerto Nov. 15 through Nov. 17 at the Meyerson Symphony Center.  Watch the video above and you can hear DSO conductor Jaap van Zweden recount how challenging the piece was for him as a young performer.  For these performances the technical demands of the piece will fall to established concert violinist, Arabella Steinbacher.  In addition to Brahms’ romantic Violin Concerto, the concert will also feature Brahms’ Third Symphony and Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem.  Art&Seek will award five lucky winners a pair of tickets for the Nov. 15 performance for this Big Deal.

And if after signing up for this Big Deal you have the urge to listen to a little Shostakovich or some classical guitar then sign up for our other Big Deals this week – tickets to to see the Atrium String Quartet presented by the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth, or tickets to see Mak Grgic when Allegro Guitar Series hosts Grgic at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth or at United Methodist Church in Dallas.
