MOZART – Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major, K. 219: Turkish
DVOŘÁK – Symphony No. 6 in D Major, Op. 60

Johannes Debus, conductor
Jeff Thayer, violin

Witold Lutosławski wrote his charming Polish folk music-based Little Suite in response to criticism of his First Symphony as being “too modern.” Antonín Dvoŕák’s Sixth Symphony brought him international recognition, and shows his developed style following German traditional form infused with Czech folk melodies. Concertmaster Jeff Thayerperforms Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s final violin concerto, which contains a hint of international influence in the final movement.
