Soloist change

LH-R is not coming
Following her doctor’s advice, violinist Latica Honda-Rosenberg is unable to travel to San Antonio for her solo appearances with the San Antonio Symphony on March 2 and 3, 2012. Violinist Vadim Gluzman will perform in her place, and the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto will replace the Shostakovich Concerto originally programmed. He will also teach the Russell Hill Rogers Strings Master Class on Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at the Majestic Theatre.

The complete Symphony program is now:
March 2 and 3, 2012 at 8 p.m. Majestic Theatre
Sebastian Lang-Lessing, conductor Vadim Gluzman, violin
Wagner Overture to The Flying Dutchman 
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D major, Op.35 
Britten Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op.33a 
Debussy La Mer
You can hear my interview with Gluzman the last time he was in town here.

I was talking with friends last night at the final Beethoven Festival concert of Piano Sonatas and somehow I mentioned Dennis Moore to them - neither of them had heard of this Monty Python sketch! (and I could not for the life of me remember what the flowers were called - Lupins!)
