AUGUSTIN HADELICH violin

TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto
STRAVINSKY Pulcinella Suite

Nothing is better suited to show off Augustin Hadelich’s “dazzling technique, gorgeous tone and penetrating spontaneous musicality” (The New York Times) than Tchaikovsky’s towering Violin Concerto. The charming Pulcinella Suite is an orchestral tribute to the beautiful arias of the Italian Baroque composer Giovanni Pergolesi, attractively colored and embellished by the modern pen of Igor Stravinsky.

“I began by composing on the Pergolesi manuscripts themselves, as though I were correcting an old work of my own. I knew that I could not produce a ‘forgery’ of Pergolesi because my motor habits are so different; at best, I could repeat him in my own accent. The remarkable thing about Pulcinella is not how much but how little has been added or changed.”

Igor Stravinsky

IMPORTANT UPDATE (March 2, 2021): It is the DSO’s duty to ensure the safety and health of our employees and patrons when we hold concerts, and we will continue to follow our current protocols backstage and in the front of house with patrons. Masks will be mandatory for staff, patrons, musicians and anyone working in the Meyerson. It has been clearly demonstrated that masks and social distancing slow the spread of COVID-19, and at this time, the CDC is recommending mask wearing in public places. Despite Texas Governor Abbott’s elimination of mask requirements and attendance limits in venues as of March 10, the DSO will require masks in the Meyerson Symphony Center, and we will limit attendance for the remainder of this season.
