Detroit Symphony Orchestra – Harold in Italy
October 20, 2017 @ 10:45 am
LOREN LOIACONO – World Premiere
ELGAR – Cello Concerto
BERLIOZ – Harold in Italy
Paganini dismissed early sketches of Berlioz’s Harold in Italy as unsuitable for the celebrated virtuoso. After hearing the final work years later, he pulled the composer on stage and knelt before him in front of a cheering audience. On a program with your DSO Principal musicians as featured soloists, Eric Nowlin performs the music depicting the melancholy traveler Harold, and Wei Yu returns as a soloist for Elgar’s Cello Concerto.
