STRAUSS Ein Heldenleben 
TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto 

Marin Alsop leads the Orchestra in Ein Heldenleben, “A Hero’s Life,” one of Richard Strauss’ most exhilarating tone poems and a terrific showpiece for large orchestra. Tchaikovsky’s dashing and elegant Violin Concerto is performed by James Ehnes, one of the world’s most sought-after violinists. His playing has been described as "effusively lyrical and hair-raisingly virtuosic" (The Guardian).
