ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Dvořák’s music has found a good match in the Houston Symphony…when it comes to sheer vitality and warmth, this Texan ensemble doesn’t hold back” (Gramophone). Following our critically-acclaimed recording of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7, experience Andrés and the orchestra’s electrifying account, live. Inspired by an ancient Peruvian legend, Jimmy López’ unforgettable concerto highlights Finnish flute virtuoso Sami Junnonen. Plus, hit the New York City streets with Bernstein’s spunky vignettes of three sailors on leave, featuring the iconic “New York, New York.”
