|HSO Maestro Andres Orozco-Estrada|
|HSO concertmaster Frank Huang|
We are in for a treat as the great Houston Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Frank Huang will be the solo violinist. Sheralyn and I really love Frank Huang and if there is a better concertmaster anywhere in the world, I'd like to see him/her. While this piece has five movements, it runs just over a half an hour.
As always on the Tales classical music weekends, when Mrs. B and I go to the symphony, we at the Tales like to give you a flavor of what we will be in treat for.
Note: In the Beethoven video with Leonard Bernstein conducting, while it is the final allegro movement, because there is no break between the third and fourth movements you will hear the bridge from the third leading to the fourth movement. You will be able to tell the transition when the exciting fourth movement begins.
Please turn up the volume and enjoy some Lalo Spanish melodies and excitement from the great Beethoven.
