Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Bartók & Beethoven
Audiences can experience nature and love through music during this concert. Debussy’s sublime suite uses musical impressionism to evoke the gradual blossoming and eventual birth of nature in springtime.
Bartók’s "lost" work is an idealization of his true love for violinist Stefi Geyer and is filled with infectious melodies and jagged rhythms that would showcase her virtuosic talents.
Beethoven composed his Sixth Symphony, a programmatic work that uses the many colors of the orchestra to tell a pastoral story, complete with babbling brooks, bird calls, a turbulent storm and a merry gathering.
The concert will feature violinist Nathan Olson. The DSO will be conducted by Gemma New. Selections for the concert include Debussy's "Printemps," Bartók's "Violin Concerto No. 1," and Beethoven's "Symphony No. 6, Pastoral."
