Concert Description

DSO-Joey Alexander Jazz

Thirteen-year-old jazz prodigy and Grammy Award nominee Joey Alexander develops fresh takes on well-known tunes, combining them seamlessly with his own original compositions in a way that invites both new and seasoned listeners in.

His mentor, Wynton Marsalis says, "I love everything about his playing — his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music."

DSO-Harold in Italy

Paganini dismissed early sketches of Berlioz’s Harold in Italy as unsuitable for the celebrated virtuoso. After hearing the final work years later, he pulled the composer on stage and knelt before him in front of a cheering audience. On a program with your DSO Principal musicians as featured soloists, Eric Nowlin performs the music depicting the melancholy traveler Harold, and Wei Yu returns as a soloist for Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

DSO -Beethoven's Eroica Symphony

Leonard Slatkin’s 10th Season as DSO Music Director opens with Beethoven’s transformational 3rd Symphony, a work that would redefine the scope of what a symphony could be, and called the “Eroica” for its wide range of emotion. Pianist Olga Kern returns to perform Barber’s Piano Concerto, a famously challenging work that was made humanly possible to play only after a timely intervention by the mighty Vladimir Horowitz.
