Tai Murray, violin
The American violinist Tai Murray, who made her Chicago Symphony debut at age nine, has been praised by the San Francisco Classical Voice for her “velvety vibrato and lyrical touch.” Tonight she will play Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy for violin and orchestra as the centerpiece of a selection of music inspired by Highland mountains and mists. Also on the program are Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony No. 3, and the poignant, evocative An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise by the English composer Peter Maxwell Davies.
