|Leonidas Kavakos – Will the HSO say, “he’s Greek to me”|
The Greek violin virtuoso, Kavakos, will be the soloist and leader in Bach’s violin concerto in A minor. Then follows Mozart’s “Linz’s” symphony #36 in C major, and after intermission will be Brahms final symphony, his symphony #4 in E minor.
This from the HSO web site about the concert: “Greek violin virtuoso Leonidas Kavakos has been hailed as “one of the most comprehensively gifted instrumentalists of his time. His playing combines a sweet, singing tone with virtuoso technique and penetrating intelligence” (Boston Globe). This fall he returns to Houston to play Bach’s exquisite Violin Concerto in A minor and conduct Brahms’ searching Symphony No. 4.”
As always whenever Mrs. Sheralyn B and I go to a Houston Symphony Orchestra I like to give you a little sample of the concert program we will be hearing.
Please turn up the volume and enjoy some Bach, Mozart and Brahms.
