Scandinavian Composers and a Promising Young Violinist at CSO This Weekend


Join Paavo and the CSO this week as they present the U.S. debut of Dutch violinist Janine Jansen, one of classical music's brightest young stars, playing the always thrilling Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.

On the program: Sibelius's Tapiola; Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major; and Nielsen's Symphony No. 6 (Sinfonia semplice).

Performances are scheduled for Friday, November 11 at 8 pm (College Nite); Saturday, November 12 at 8 pm; and Sunday, November 13 at 3 pm (a CSO "Family Sundays" concert). For tickets, visit the www.cincinnatisymphony.org or contact the CSO Sales Office at (513) 381-3300.

Read the Program Notes before you go to keep the page-rattling down :-). Listen to Paavo's Notes about this concert. All concerts are preceded by Pre-Concert Classical Conversations at 7 pm Friday and Saturday, 2 pm Sunday. This program will air over classical WGUC-FM (90.9) on Sunday, Janaury 29, 2006 at 7:30 pm ET.

Special Note: In case you haven't noticed, the free cough drops which we've become spoiled to expect over the past many years at Music Hall are no longer available due to a change in the donor company's national policy. You may wish to bring your own, as I do, as a preventative measure. I'm sure the musicians and other listeners would appreciate it, especially now that the cold and flu season is at hand.
