In a program highlighting composers of the Classical era, violinist Karen Gomyo returns to the DSO to perform the First Violin Concerto of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Known as both a champion fencer and violinist, his concertos offered a way to demonstrate both his expressiveness and virtuosity. We also hear one of the famed late symphonies of another eccentric personality, Mozart's majestic Symphony No. 39.

This performance is only available as part of a 2021-2022 Classical Series subscription package. Subscribe today at dso.org/classical.

Gomyo's playing boasts a bold, steely beauty, which at least in this context made few concessions to traditional notions of lyricism or expressive warmth. ”
