The Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Emanuel Borok plays the violin showpieces Sérénade mélancolique and Valse-Scherzo by Tchaikovsky.

Brahms A German Requiem

Magical Mendelssohn

Brahms’ sturdy A German Requiem is personal faith made public. Soprano Laura Aikin, baritone Russell Braun and the Dallas Symphony Chorus will follow Jaap van Zweden to amazing musical heights.

Young Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti is making waves internationally, and in her DSO debut she’ll play the lyrical Violin Concerto by Mendelssohn. Also on the program, led by Jaap van Zweden, is Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8.

Lay Concert Organ The Meyerson’s Lay Family Concert Organ will sound in magnificent glory during Richard Strauss’ powerful Also sprach Zarathustra and as Mary Preston plays the world premiere of the Organ Concerto by Danish composer Poul Ruders, a DSO commission. Conductor Roberto Minczuk also leads the buoyant Symphony No. 35, Haffner, by Mozart.

Serkin’s Brahms Distinguished pianist Peter Serkin returns to the DSO playing the colossal Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2. Thomas Dausgaard makes his Dallas debut, also conducting Nielsen’s Symphony No. 2, The Four Temperaments, which pairs musical movements with specific moods.

Jaap van Zweden and Dallas-based world percussion ensemble D’Drum play the premiere of Gamelan D’Drum by Stewart Copeland, drummer from The Police. Intrada for Brass and Percussion by Willem van Otterloo casts a ceremonial mood; Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, Scottish, was inspired by the folk songs and dramatic landscapes of Scotland.

Jaap van Zweden and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra give voice to many manifestations of love — the outpourings in the Prelude and Liebestod from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, the sentiment of Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier Suite, and the sweet intensity of Morricone’s Gabriel’s Oboe. Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1, a whirlwind of virtuosity and expression.

Haydn’s Symphony No. 103, Drum Roll, provides a lively interlude.

Sponsors & Donors Musicians of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra think of their jobs as an investment, rather than work. Every hour of practice, each carefully studied note, is an investment in the future of music.

We invite you to become a donor and join us in making your destination the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. For a complete listing of gift levels and benefits, please visit DallasSymphony.com/Donation.
