The Dallas Symphony Orchestra opens its six concert residency at Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival with Beethoven's beautiful Egmont Overture. Going from strong to stronger, with Ida Kavafian on violin, Peter Wiley on Cello and the new music director of the festival Anne-Marie McDermott on piano, Maestro Jaap van Zweden is tackles the brilliant Triple Concerto. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra then continues the Beethoven theme, "Architect of Humanity: Great Works for Orchestra" for the opening concert with Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92.
Conductor Jeff Tyzik will lead the Dallas Symphony on July 1st with "Three Broadway Divas," featuring Debbie Gravitte, Jan Horvath and Christiane Noll. You'll experience the glitter of Broadway as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and three incredible Broadway Divas dazzle you with a spectacular blend of Broadway favorites.
Jaap van Zweden then returns to the podium on July 2nd for the "Hammer Blows of Fate" and Mahler's Symphony No. 6.
"To those who better understand Mahler, our world and, perhaps, themselves, the work as a whole is exhilarating, not depressing. It is preeminently cathartic, just as the greatest tragedies of Ancient Greece are cathartic." - Jack Diether, New York Times
And that's just the beginning of a month long music festival in the beautiful Vail Valley.
