Why See New Mexico Philharmonic?
A Varied and Dynamic Program featuring Violinist Karen Gomyo
Join the New Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra for an evening of Smetana, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky led by Brazilian conductor Roberto Minczuk. The presentation includes a special guest performance by critically acclaimed violin virtuoso Karen Gomyo, who will tackle the rhythmic heights of Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1.
After a pre-concert talk held at 5pm, the performance commences with Semtana's Vltava, a glorious, single-movement symphonic poem. This is followed by Prokofiev's Violin Concerto, and the evening closes with two Tchaikovsky works. His Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy draws on the bittersweet tragedy of Shakespeare's beloved story, while his celebratory 1812 Overture is a rousing, epic way to end the concert.
Performance date: 24 February 2018
