BRUCH Violin Concerto No.1 in G Minor
BERLIOZ Symphonie Fantastique
Benny Kim, a frequent guest of Joseph Giunta’s over the years, makes his long-awaited return. Possessing a “titanium technique” and producing “exquisite, pearly colorations,” he is a Des Moines favorite. He performs Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1—one of the violin repertoire’s most beautiful and beloved of all pieces. Plus, just in time for Halloween, experience live Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique—a fanciful and vivid musical exploration of passion, tragedy and the supernatural. Concert Prelude Talks begin 45 minutes prior to each Masterworks concert in the East Lobby. Read concert program notes here.
