Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Dvořák’s Violin Concerto & Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony
Tchaikovsky sets his tone poem of forbidden passion in the Inferno, where Francesca and her lover Paolo suffer for their transgressions. Raging, turbulent music reflects both their love and their agony. But this concert also offers happier fare: Gil Shaham performs Dvořák’s "Violin Concerto" with its tapestry of Bohemian folk melodies and dances. Plus, Prokofiev’s delightful "First Symphony," “Classical” inspiration compliments of Haydn.
