AGUDELO La Madre de Agua (World Premiere) DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3, “Organ” Miguel Harth-Bedoya leads the Orchestra in Saint-Saëns’ “Organ” Symphony, a work whose remarkable concentration of tunes, colors, and kaleidoscopic thematic invention has made it one of the most popular in the symphonic repertoire. Plus, Johannes Moser performs Dvořák's richly sonorous and deeply personal Cello Concerto, and composer Victor Agudelo will join the orchestra for the world premiere of his La Madre de Agua.
MOZART Violin Concerto No. 3, “Strassburg” SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 11, “The Year 1905” Violinist Karen Gomyo, who has been hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity,” returns to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra with American conductor Andrew Grams for a performance of Mozart’s bright and lively “Strassburg” concerto. Also on the program is Shostakovich’s profoundly affecting Symphony No. 11, which recounts events during the start of the first Russian Revolution.
