Houston Symphony presents Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings
Frank Huang leads the Houston Symphony from the Concertmaster’s chair in this program of favorite works for chamber orchestra and strings. Written as a birthday present for his wife, Cosima, Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll contains tender and lyrical music later used in his opera of the same name. The concert also features Frank Huang as soloist in Dvorák’s melodic Romance for Violin and Orchestra and Sarasate’s gypsy-inspired showstopper, Zigeunerweisen. Concluding the program, Dvorák’s sunny Serenade for Strings presents one gorgeous melody after another, filled with all the warmth and generosity for which this composer is so treasured.
