Concert Details

The earthy melodies and unbridled passion of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto may have confounded nineteenth-century critics, but these are the qualities which ultimately made it a cornerstone of the Romantic repertoire.

HSO Concertmaster Josh Holritz performs as soloist in this program which also includes Prokofiev’s music for the 1934 Soviet film Lieutenant Kijé, and perhaps the most famous of all concert overtures, Tchaikovsky’s majestic The Year 1812.
