DM SYMPHONY - BEETHOVEN’S VIOLIN CONCERTO
Perhaps the first Romantic concerto ever written, Beethoven’s transcendent Violin Concerto in D Major pushed the limits of the art form. Paul Huang, recipient of the prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, is renowned for his intensely expressive music making; hear him play this lyrical work with the Des Moines Symphony in a program which features the noble grandeur and epic journey of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony and Nielsen’s wonderfully ebullient Overture to Masquerade.

"The fact that our son was working with Broadway professionals and getting vocal and acting lessons from people who actually acted on Broadway was stunning."
