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.

This program will be live webcast Saturday, October 21
