TONIGHT'S CONCERT IS ON! TCHAIKOVSKY ROCKS AT 7.
FEATURING Xavier Foley, bass soloist
A tour of classical repertoire inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, tonight's concert features special guest, Xavier Foley, an award-winning young double bassist representing the next generation of great classical performers. Foley performs Koussevitzky’s Concerto for Double Bass.
Composers and literary authors alike have found inspiration through the written word for ballet, incidental music and the concert overture, ranging from Mendelssohn to Finzi to Prokofiev. The Czech composer, Josef Suk’s work Towards a New Life from 1931 opens with a trumpet fanfare.
