MozartRavel_rotator.jpg

Friday and Saturday 8PM

PERFORMERS Nashville Symphony Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor Roberto Diaz, viola Jun Iwasaki, violin PROGRAM Jennifer Higdon – All Things Majestic Live Recording Jennifer Higdon – Viola Concerto Live Recording | Nashville Symphony Co-commission Mozart – Sinfonia Concertante Ravel – La Valse Mozart’s genius comes vividly to life in his sparkling Sinfonia Concertante, a showcase for Nashville Symphony concertmaster Jun Iwasaki and violist Roberto Diaz. This rarely performed work is a chance to hear the Viennese master at his finest, while Ravel’s La Valse is the French composer’s endlessly inventive take on the Viennese waltz, with kaleidoscopic colors and a breathtaking climax. Composer Jennifer Higdon returns to Nashville for the live recording of her Viola Concerto, which will feature Roberto Diaz performing on a rare Stradivarius viola — one of the very few still in existence today.
