Winter Dreams


Walker: Lyric for Strings

Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 4

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 1, "Winter Dreams"

Guest conductor Erina Yashima of the Philadelphia Orchestra lands in Eugene to conduct our orchestra. First, you’ll hear George Walker’s beautiful and touching lament that was dedicated to his grandmother. By contrast, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4, featuring Paul Huang in his Eugene debut, is elegant and endlessly delightful. To close this magical concert, we share Russian master Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 1, nicknamed “Winter Dreams,” which will warm your heart during the cold months.

The Guild Concert Preview will be from 6:30-7PM in Silva Concert Hall.

Program subject to change.
