Violin Legends: Gil Shaham


October 07-08

Program and Description


PROGRAM:

GRIEG: Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 
MENDELSSOHN: Violin Concerto 
DVOŘÁK: Symphony No. 7

PROGRAM NOTES

The esteemed Neeme Järvi, head of a musical dynasty that includes sons Paavo and Kristjan, conducts the CSO for these performances. Gil Shaham, who one reviewer said, “makes even the most virtuosic music seem so effortless and natural,” performs Mendelssohn’s dazzling Violin Concerto. Combined with two of the best-loved works in the Romantic orchestral oeuvre—the bold and picturesque Peer Gynt Suite (including the iconic “In the Hall of the Mountain King”) and the stirring Symphony No. 7, generally considered to be Dvořák’s finest symphonic work and an expression of his deep Czech nationalism—this program is one to savor.
