Guest Artist Giora Schmidt, violin

The Tchaikovsky Serenade is truly a masterpiece. A symphony for strings highlighting Tchaikovsky’s superb gift for melody and virtuosity. Counter balancing this epic work, we open with a gem for wind players, Gounod’s delightful Petite Symphony.  In between this showcase for winds and strings is Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with famed Israeli virtuoso Giora Schmidt.  The New York based soloist brings incredible lyricism and soulfulness to this intimate and poetic work.
