Celebrate composer Jean Sibelius’ 150th birthday year with three-time Grammy Award®-winning violinist Hilary Hahn as she plays the Finnish composer’s passionate violin concerto with Andrés and the Houston Symphony. Be entranced from the icy opening to the searing Adagio and the virtuoso finale with its foot-stomping “polonaise for polar bears.” Delight in Dvorák’s pastoral Symphony No. 6 as Andrés and the orchestra complete our recordings of Dvorák’s Symphonies No. 6-9 for the PENTATONE label. Full of enchanting melodies inspired by his native Bohemia, selections of Dvorák’s beloved Slavonic Dances complete this program of Finnish and Czech masterpieces.

Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
Gabriela Montero, piano
Gabriela Lena Frank: Escaramuza

Houston favorite Gabriela Montero returns to perform Grieg’s virtuosic Piano Concerto. From its unforgettable opening chords to its heart-on-sleeve finale, warm melodies with a Nordic color abound in this perennially popular work.
