DVOŘÁK The Wood Dove
TCHAIKOVSKY Concerto in D Major for Violin and Orchestra
LUTOSŁAWSKI Concerto for Orchestra

Internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command and interpretive depth, Karina Canellakis returns to the Meyerson stage to bring us Dvořák’s orchestral poem, The Wood Dove, a dark poem focused on a woman who poisoned her husband to marry another man. Over four musical scenes, Dvořák describes a story where a woman poisons her husband and marries another man. And then, day after day, a dove sits on the dead husband’s grave singing a sad song, evoking so much guilt that the wife in the story jumps into a river and drowns. This story comes from the poem of the same name from Kytice, a collection of ballads by Karel Jaromír Erben.

Also on the program, Randall Goosby, the fast-rising 25-year-old star and Decca recording Roots violinist, who joins the Dallas Symphony to perform Tchaikovsky’s Concerto in D Major, his only concerto for violin, written in 1878 by the shores of Lake Geneva, is one of the best-known violin concertos of all time!

To close, Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra highlights the DSO musicians with thrilling and elaborate orchestral textures.
