Symphonie fantastique

Watch FWSO Principal Cellist Allan Steele shine in Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, which reflect Tchaikovsky’s adoration of the music of Mozart, a composer he revered above all, and they present a dazzling package of virtuoso cello-writing. Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps will delight with its playful twists and turns. And Berlioz’s epic Symphonie fantastique will tell the story of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman.

The Miraculous Mandarin

Guest conductor Robert Trevino leads an all-orchestral program of works by Wagner, Bartok, and Rachmaninoff. Wagner’s transcendent Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde opens the concert.

And Rachmaninoff’s melodic genius is on full display in his Second Symphony, unforgettable both for its energy and its poignancy.

Harth-Bedoya and Hadelich: A Grand Finale

Tchaikovsky wrote of his Fourth Symphony, “There is not a single line in this Symphony that I have not felt in my whole being and that has not been a true echo of the soul." In his grand finale concert, Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducts this rousing work along with Dvorák’s Violin Concerto, a work full of rustic vitality and lyrial folk melodies with acclaimed violinist (and Fort Worth favorite) Augustin Hadelich and the world premiere of Victor Agudelo’s Rabu de paja.
