season closes with the winning entry in our annual Young Composers Competition
and introduces violinist Philippe Quint. Described as "a handsome
dark-haired young man with a flair for fashion, a 1708 Stradivarius, and a
fabulous technique,” Mr. Quint plays Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D
Major. Dvorak’s beloved New World Symphony describes
the "endless acres of field and meadow" of Spillville Iowa, where he
spent the summer of 1893.
