WEBER Invitation to the Dance
BRUCH Violin Concerto No. 1 in G Minor
RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances
Joseph Giunta and the Des Moines Symphony open our 80th Season, ‘Music in Motion,’ with Weber’s graceful, vivacious Invitation to the Dance. Two-time GRAMMY nominee Jennifer Frautschi makes her triumphant return to Des Moines for a richly textured performance of Bruch’s beloved First Violin Concerto. Rachmaninoff’s final work, the brilliantly scored Symphonic Dances, ends our Season Debut in a blaze of whirling, lavish melodies.
