Our All-Tchaikovsky Season Finale opens with the full dynamic force of the Orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s riveting and festive Capriccio Italien. The brilliant, young violinist Simone Porter’s playing has been described as “dynamic” and “impassioned,” and she makes her Des Moines debut in the famous and romantic Violin Concerto in D Major. The program, which concludes with the composer’s Symphony No. 5, will be long-remembered as one of Des Moines’s most beautiful and dramatic nights of music.
