À propos de l'événement

The “New World” Symphony is a captivating work full of beautiful  melodies and rich dynamics. This late 19th-century composition is  considered one of Dvořák’s most recognizable and evocative works,  conjuring powerful images of the North American landscape. The  symphony’s unique fusion of European classical music with African  American and Native American melodies and rhythms is a testament to the  power of art in bridging cultures and bringing people together. Plus,  Kiwi/American violinist Geneva Lewis – who has forged a reputation as a  musician of consummate artistry with heartfelt performances – joins us  for a performance of Mendelssohn’s final Violin Concerto. Lauded for  “remarkable mastery of her instrument” (CVNC) and hailed as “clearly one  to watch” (Musical America), Lewis is the recipient of a 2022  Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and among BBC’s New Generation Artists.
