With Maestro Wes Kenney navigating the way, the Fort Collins Symphony travels from Paris to Prague on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Center, performing music composed by Berlioz, Brahms, and Dvořák. The evening features New York Philharmonic Assistant Concertmaster Michelle Kim and renowned cellist Clive Greensmith performing Johannes Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello.
The concert begins with French Romantic composer Hector Berlioz’s Le Corsaire Overture, a piece inspired by a poem by Lord Byron about pirates. Michelle Kim and Clive Greensmith play Brahms’ unusual concerto for two solo instruments, violin and cello. The concert concludes with Czech composer Antonín Dvořák’s light-hearted and pastoral Symphony No. 6.
