The Austin Symphony – REMARKABLE ROMANTICS
Friday, February 18, 2022 8:00PM
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?!
