BARBER VIOLIN CONCERTO


January 29 & 30, 2016, 8:00 p.m.
Sebastian Lang-Lessing, conductor | Eric Gratz, violin
H-E-B Performance Hall at The Tobin Center

Copland      El salón México
Barber         Violin Concerto
Catán          Florencia en el Amazonas Orchestra Suite
Barber         Medea’s Dance of Vengeance

Aaron Copland’s El salón Mexico, an evocative tone-painting of a Mexico City dance hall, opens this program. The San Antonio Symphony features its very own brilliant concertmaster Eric Gratz in Samuel Barber’s superbly melodic Violin Concerto—its lush Romanticism a clever contrast to the same composer’s Medea’s Dance of Vengeance, his portrait of “psychological states of jealousy and vengeance which are timeless.” Orchestral excerpts from Mexican composer Daniel Catán’s tuneful Florencia en el Amazones round out this colorful program.
