Houston Symphony presents Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker + Gil Shaham
To celebrate the holidays, Andrés Orozco-Estrada and the orchestra will share music from Tchaikovsky’s iconic Nutcracker score. Running the gamut from radiant lyricism to jaw-dropping fireworks, Barber’s Violin Concerto is one of the most beloved in the repertoire, and no one plays it better than international superstar Gil Shaham. Shaham also joins Principal Bass Robin Kesselman for the dazzling Gran Duo Concertante by double bass virtuoso Giovanni Bottesini.
The Saturday performance will be available to livestream.
