The Big Deal: Dallas Symphony Orchestra Presents Dvořák’s Violin Concerto

by Gila Espinoza 18 Dec 2019 1:30 AM

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will welcome preeminent violinist Gil Shaham to the stage in January for an evening program of fiery passion, stirring nationalism,  and delightful classical music.  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. For happier fare, Shaham will perform Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with its tapestry of Bohemian folk melodies and dances. Plus, Prokofiev’s delightful First Symphony, “Classical” inspiration compliments of Haydn. Sign up below for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the opening night performance on January 16 at the Meyerson Symphony Center.
