Ward Stare, conductor
James Ehnes, violin
BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto
RAVEL Valses nobles et sentimentales
STRAUSS Suite from Der Rosenkavalier
Admired for artistry that’s “effusively lyrical and hair-raisingly virtuosic” (The Guardian), Grammy-winning violinist James Ehnes is the perfect match for Beethoven’s sublime concerto, one of the most popular in the classical canon. Strauss’ nod to old-world Viennese waltz and Ravel’s waltz nouveau round out an evening of musical elegance.
