ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Its hair-raising technical demands were deemed “unplayable” when first composed—but Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto has gone on to become one of the best known and best loved in the repertoire. You’re in good hands with Karen Gomyo, “an artist of rare musical command” (Chicago Tribune). Plus, enjoy the lush, cinematic sweep of music from Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

Pre-Concert Activities: Chamber Music Prelude

Your ticket includes a special chamber music performance by Houston Symphony musicians on the Jones Hall stage starting 45 minutes before the concert. The first people to arrive will be given the opportunity to sit onstage for the prelude performance.Those interested should line up outside the Jones Hall main entrance on the Louisiana Patio near the first door on the right before doors open, 1 hour before the concert begins. All others may watch the chamber music performance from the front orchestra seating of Jones Hall. The chamber music replaces the regularly scheduled Prelude discussion.
