7:30 PM | Capitol Theater | Overture Center for the Arts
MASTERWORKS
Guest Artist, Ilya Kaler, violin
William Boyce, the English contemporary of Handel, wrote eight Symphonies. His Symphony No. 5 is a fitting fanfare to open the season and similar in style to Handel’s Water Music. We welcome the debut of Russian virtuoso Ilya Kaler, with Tchaikovsky’s awe-inspiring Violin Concerto. This popular and demanding concerto never fails to excite and thrill an audience. The 4th Symphony of Schubert, dubbed the “Tragic”, is famous for its mood and mystery. The master of German lieder, Schubert can spin a melody that touches every emotion.

REPERTOIRE
BOYCE | Symphony No. 5 in D major
TCHAIKOVSKY | Violin Concerto in D major
SCHUBERT | Symphony No. 4 “Tragic” in C minor
