Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Female Pioneers: Alsop and Hahn
Hilary Hahn joins Marin Alsop and the DSO for Mozart’s final violin concerto, composed when Mozart was only 19 years of age and loaded with opportunities to showcase Hilary Hahn’s virtuosity. Sometimes nicknamed his “Turkish” concerto, the finale is cut short by a gypsy dance melody before it comes to a triumphant close.
The concert will also feature Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1 in D major (“Classical”), the U.S. premiere of Magnus Lindberg's Absence (Abwesenheit – L’Absence) and the Dallas premiere of Jessie Montgomery's Strum.
