It is that time once again for another great concert at Jones Hall that Mrs. B and I will be attending to see and hear our world class Houston Symphony Orchestra. And what a great program it will be featuring Tchaikovsky's symphonic fantasy, "The Tempest", and his great and ultra-exciting Violin Concerto [my favorite violin concerto]. Also, on the concert program will be Bernard Herrmann's Vertigo Suite and Erich Korngold's "Suite from "The Sea Hawk".
|Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky [1840 - 1893]|
Thirty six year old Japanese American virtuoso, Karen Gomyo, is soloist in the virtuosic Tchaikovsky concerto. The violin concerto is scored in D Major with three movements: 1. Allegro Moderato, 2. Canzonetta-Andante, and 3. Allegro Vivacissimo.
As usual, when Mrs. B and I go to a Houston Symphony concert, I like to share with you just a sample of what we will be hearing. So, please turn up the volume and enjoy some great music.
