Some truly special gifts! Conductor Steven Karidoyanes wrote his symphonic dance, YerakÍna: Dionysian Dance for Orchestra for the Pittsburgh Symphony’s 2006 European Tour. This encore premiered in Patras, Greece, and inspired audience enthusiasm with its homage to one of the best known folk songs and dances in modern Greek culture! From the first note of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, soloist SooBeen Lee bursts into a melodic maelstrom, beckoning the orchestra to join, casting a grand, playfully hypnotic contrast. Instantly popular from its first premiere in Vienna, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 is a work of ground-breaking art. This achingly beautiful symphony has sparked endless speculation as to its inspiration—truly a gift that keeps on giving!
