Jessie MONTGOMERY - BRAHMS - DVOŘÁK
With Kerson Leong and Stéphane Tétreault, Brahms’s Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra presents a Romantic vision of the concerto grosso. With its powerful melodies and intricately woven construction, the piece charms and stuns, time and again.
Under the baton of German conductor Erina Yashima, Dvořák’s luminously orchestrated Symphony No. 5 reveals the mature side of the composer, better known for his New World Symphony. With the first movement’s captivating melodies and the last movement’s poignant drama, it has an impact on everyone who hears it. Though she is only in her early forties, American composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery is at the peak of her craft. Her piece Strum, inspired by popular American folk melodies, leads the listener from nostalgia to pure delight.
