NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Few can surpass Pinchas Zukerman in Beethoven’s sole violin concerto: he imbues every phrase with singing tone and heartfelt expression.
BARBER The School for Scandal Overture
Kinetic and youthful; Barber’s first piece for orchestra draws its tart flavor from Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s satirical play.
BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto
Only performed once during Beethoven’s lifetime, his Violin Concerto spins effortless melody.
SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3, “Organ”
Though the organ only appears in two movements, its magnificent sound shakes the rafters in this tribute to Liszt.
