AUSTIN SYMPHONY PRESENTS
WITH SPECIAL GUEST MIDORI
February 18 & 19 at 8:00 p.m | The Long Center
Kennedy Center 2021 honoree, Midori, returns for a much-anticipated performance of Sibelius' only concerto, the exquisite Violin Concerto in D Minor. Bookends for the program include a work by Dvořák's pupil, Joseph Suk's expressive Fantastické Scherzo, and his own Symphony No. 3 written in only three movements. It begins with an expansive melody and ends with a spirited dancelike rondo; how else would you end a remarkable concert for a romantic night out?!
JOSEPH SUK - Fantastické Scherzo, Op. 25
JEAN SIBELIUS - Violin Concerto in D Minor, Op. 47
ANTONÍN DVOŘÁK - Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, Op. 10
Peter Bay, conductor
