Plano Symphony: Lindsay Deutsch Violin Showcase

Hector Guzman and the Plano Symphony Orchestra open the 2018/19 Season with Carlos Chávez’s brilliant Sinfonía India, the composer’s most frequently performed work strongly influenced by the musical spirit of Mexico. This rhythmic curtain raiser is followed by the sublime melodies in Bruch’s Violin Concerto, one of the major concertos for violin alongside concertos by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Brahms.

Keeping with the popular tradition of two major concertos, Opening Night continues with what famed violinist Joshua Bell referred to as, “the Violin Concerto that Gershwin never wrote.” Based on the beloved melodies of Porgy and Bess, the Fantasy was arranged by Alexander Courage.

Lindsay Deutsch returns for the “Best of the Best,” having previously charmed Plano Symphony audiences in a two violin concerto evening featuring Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the Beatles Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra. Audiences all over the US and Canada have been captivated by Ms. Deutsch’s brilliant technique and onstage charisma. Lindsay Deutsch is engaged in reaching younger audiences with CLASSIFIED, performing traditional classical repertory with more popular works in and outside the concert hall, in addition to unique settings from restaurants to clubs and bars.

The Opening Night showcase concludes with rousing Spanish dances in Manuel de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat!
