Canadian Superstar James Ehnes
UPDATE: The Salvatore’s Symphony Shuttle has been canceled for this date. There will be no shuttle from D’Youville or the BPO Clement House for this weekend.
JoAnn Falletta conducts superstar violinist and 2019 GRAMMY award winner James Ehnes in his debut with the BPO, performing the lush, lyrical Korngold Violin Concerto. This concert also features a new work by UB Birge-Cary Chair in Music Composition David Felder, die Dammerungen; the brilliant rondo “Invitation to the Dance,” written for piano by Carl Maria von Weber and transcribed for orchestra by Hector Berlioz; and finally, Strauss’ warmhearted Der Rosenkavalier--“The Knight of the Rose.” Come one hour prior to these concerts to hear directly from the artists in “Musically Speaking,” hosted by JoAnn Falletta.
