Join the Houston Symphony for the music of Brahms' most tender work with lyrical melodies, brilliant technical fireworks and a sprinkle of Hungarian folk rhythms. James Ehnes, violin, joins the symphony for this classical concert. Ehnes is widely considered one of the most dynamic and exciting performers in classical music, performing in more than 30 countries on five continents, and appearing regularly with many of the world's most well-known orchestras and conductors. Also on the program, Dvořák's Symphony No. 6 was dedicated to Hans Richter, who was the conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The four-movement piece was one of the first of Dvořák's large symphonic works to draw international attention. Pre-concert activities in the Fidelity Investments Plaza begin at 7 p.m. This event is sponsored in part by CultureMap.
