Nashville Symphony | Ken-David Masur, conductor Vadim Gluzman, violin


Bacewicz - Overture for Orchestra
Prokofiev - Violin Concerto No. 2
Saint-Saëns - Symphony No. 3, "Organ"

"I gave everything to it I was able to give,” declared Camille Saint-Saëns of his Third Symphony. “What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.” Experience the unique power of this towering masterpiece, which sets loose the awe-inspiring sonic splendor of the pipe organ as it builds to its resounding and electrifying conclusion. Esteemed violinist Vadim Gluzman makes his first Nashville Symphony appearance in two decades to perform Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, a work he calls “gorgeous and angular, dark and shining with light – music of contrasts, full of great beauty and excitement.”
