Symphony Concert

Tan Dun, Beethoven, Rimsky-Korsakov
André Raphel, conductor
Jennifer Frautschi, violin

A masterful program fusing the music and culture of East and West traditions. Music Director André Raphel examines the percussive, sweeping rhythm of Tan Dun’s “Symphonic Poem of 3 Notes” and the dazzling, colorful orchestration in Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” (inspired by Arabian Nights). Two time Grammy nominated violinist Jennifer Frautschi joins the WSO performing Beethoven’s “Violin Concerto,” a dramatic lyrical showpiece.
