Eckart Preu, Conductor

Roger Wilkie, Violin

Brahms

Violin Concerto, op. 77, D major

Dvořák

Symphony No. 7, op. 70, D minor

Elkington

Out of the Mist

This poignant program will feature an array of music from the Romantic period beginning with a rare work by British composer Lilian Elkington who was inspired by the return of the ship carrying the coffin of the Unknown Soldier. Her brilliant score, Out of the Mist (1921), was discovered in a pawn shop after her death and is one of her only known works. Next, Concertmaster Roger Wilkie will be put to the test in Brahms’ highly virtuosic Violin Concerto which will be followed by Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7, a work delicately woven with Slavonic folk melodies evoking the composer’s political and personal emotion.

Program and artists subject to change.
