New Season - New World
New London, Connecticut
Saturday, 26 October 2019 - 7:30 PM (Tickets)
The ECSO opens its 73rd season with a show-stopper program sure to excite the audience. Grammy Award-winning composer, Kenneth Fuchs’ (University of Connecticut faculty) exciting overture, Discover the Wild, opens the concert evoking images of America’s wild west. The evening’s soloist, international touring violinist and University of Connecticut faculty member Solomiya Ivakhiv, makes her ECSO debut performing what is arguably the most popular violin concerto of all time, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Following intermission, the orchestra returns in full force to celebrate Music Director & Conductor Toshiyuki Shimada’s 10th anniversary by performing the symphony that he programmed on his audition concert 10 years ago – Antonín Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 (From the New World). Dvorák wrote his iconic symphony in America drawing from spiritual and Americana themes to create one of the most satisfying melodic journeys in the orchestral canon.
