BRIGHT SHENG Tibetan Love Song and Swing
BRITTEN Violin Concerto
BERLIOZ Symphonie Fantastique

Music Director Andreas Delfs conducts Berlioz’s only symphony, the Fantastique, described by Leonard Bernstein as “the first musical expedition into psychedelia because of its hallucinatory and dream-like nature.”

Benjamin Beilman offers the Rochester premiere of Britten’s beautiful and emotionally complex Violin Concerto.

Bright Sheng’s Tibetan Swing evokes a Tibetan mountain dance.

This concert will repeat Monday, October 14 at 8 p.m.

Broadcast of RPO Concerts on WXXI Classical is made possible by a grant from Dr. Ralph Jozefowicz in honor of WXXI Classical's 50th Anniversary.
