Concert Description

Rafael Payare conducts Gustav Mahler’s savage and sublime Fifth Symphony, famed for its heart-wrenching Adagietto. “Payare coaxed an enormous variety of timbre from the musicians, with cut-your-finger sharpness in attacks throughout Mahler,” wrote the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Also, DSO Concertmaster Yoonshin Song plays the “Turkish” Violin Concerto, the last Mozart would write, at the age of just 19.

Yoonshin Song, violin   Bio

Acclaimed as “a wonderfully talented violinist… [whose] sound and technique go well beyond her years,”  DSO Concertmaster Yoonshin Song was born in South Korea where she began her musical studies at age 5. Making her orchestral debut at age 11, she has since built a successful performing career throughout Korea, the United States, and Europe. Song earned her master’s degree and Graduate Diploma under the tutelage of Donald Weilerstein at the New England Conservatory and recently completed the Artist Diploma and Professional Study programs at Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Robert Mann and Glenn Dicterow.
