“The outstanding American violinist of his generation” (Time), Gil Shaham performs Korngold’s Violin Concerto. First premiered by the STL Symphony in 1947, the work by the cinematic composer will astound with its lush melodies and technical pyrotechnics. The concert comes to a stunning conclusion with Dvořák’s beloved New World Symphony, an audience favorite for its musical depiction of the American spirit.
