Houston Symphony presents Ravel’s La valse
Filled with radiant warmth and dazzling flights into the stratosphere, Korngold’s Violin Concerto is one of the most treasured in the repertoire. In the hands of Latvian star Baiba Skride, it promises to be nothing short of extraordinary. A program tinged in the tumult of the 20th century ends with Ravel’s fiery showstopper, a hair-raising whirlwind that evokes old-world elegance waltzing on the brink of oblivion.
Andrés Orozco-Estrada will be the Music Director of this event.
