The Detroit Symphony Orchestra
This performance will also be broadcast live on 90.9 FM WRCJ at 10:45am.
Dvořák’s Eighth remains one of his most popular symphonies; its uplifting, dance-like melodies are inspired by the folk songs of his native Bohemia. The Times of London has called Yeol Eum Son “a model of clarity and fleetness”—qualities that shine in her performance of Mendelssohn’s spellbinding work for piano and orchestra. The program opens with a DSO premiere of Pulitzer Prize–winner Tania León’s work Pasajes.
