Jennifer Koh returns to Detroit to perform Tyshawn Sorey’s new Violin Concerto as part of her mission to demonstrate the diversity of American music. John Adams’s The Chairman Dances is an "outtake" from his opera Nixon in China that paints an off-kilter portrait of Mao Zedong. And Dvořák's Seventh Symphony was written in a flurry of Czech nationalism – "God grant that this Czech music will move the world!" the composer wrote.

This performance is only available as part of a 2020-2021 Classical Series subscription package. Subscribe today at dso.org/classical.
