Virtuoso Violin

Rossini Overture, Semiramide
Paganini Violin Concerto No.1
Dvořák Symphony No.8

Michele Mariotti conductor
Ray Chen violin

A quiet hymn, a flurry of birdsong, a dancing rhythm, and Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony bursts into sunny, irrepressible life. Dvořák might have written more famous symphonies, but he never wrote a happier one. So it’s perfect for the lively young Italian conductor Michele Mariotti – and he’ll bring out all the drama of Rossini’s Semiramide overture too. In between, prepare to be dazzled by the music of Niccolò Paganini: a violinist so incredible that they said he’d signed a pact with Satan. The only devilry tonight, though, is the playing of the brilliant Ray Chen!
