JULIA PERRY A Short Piece for Orchestra KORNGOLD Violin Concerto DVOŘÁK Symphony No.7 Christian Reif conductor Philippe Quint violin Big Noise Torry
You never quite know where music is going to take you. Erich Korngold was born in old Vienna but ended up in Hollywood, and his gorgeous Violin Concerto embraces both worlds. Dvořák got the idea for his Seventh Symphony at a Prague railway station, but it grew into one of his most personal (and dramatic) masterpieces. And in Black History Month, conductor Christian Reif celebrates a neglected classic by the American composer Julia Perry: you’ll wonder why we don’t hear it more often. Plus, don’t miss the young musicians of Big Noise Torry as they join the RSNO on stage with a very special performance.
