The concert will include Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto “La Tempesta di mare,” the U.S. premier performer of Vasks’s “Lonely Angel,” Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes” and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2.
Karina Canellakis will be the conductor. Recently appointed assistant conductor of the Dallas Symphony, she has gained national and worldwide recognition as a promising young American conductor. She made her Carnegie Hall conducting debut in Zankel Hall, and frequently appears as guest conductor of New York’s groundbreaking International Contemporary Ensemble.
Canellakis is also a gifted violinist, and will be playing and conducting for the October 24 program.
This summer Canellakis was one of only two conducting fellows at Boston Symphony’s Tanglewood Music Center. This season she is conducting for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Colorado and Toledo symphonies.
