Then will be a first time for us to see in Jones Hall the great Hungarian 20th century composer, Bela Bartok's Violin Concerto #2 with soloist, Augustin Hadelich. The Houston Symphony Orchestra's website notes: "witness why, according to the Houston Chronicle, Hadelich’s last performance at Jones Hall "exerted the kind of excitement that threatens to lift the listener right out of his seat."
After intermission will be one of the later symphonies from the great Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, his Symphony #39 in E-Flat Major. This pleasant symphony has a positive, at times majestic quality, with a triumphant finish. This symphony has the traditional four movements: 1. Adagio [introduction-then Allegro], 2. Andante con moto, 3. Minuette:Trio and 4. Allegro.
Yes, this will be a dream night in Jones Hall tonight, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," that is.
As usual, when Mrs. B and I attend our great symphony orchestra at Jones Hall, we like to present a little sample of the pieces that we will be enjoying.
Please turn up the volume and enjoy.
