Violin Concerto No. 3 [World Premiere]

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

Symphony No. 1, “A Sea Symphony”

“Behold the sea itself,” say the opening words of “A Sea Symphony” — a magnificent four-movement canvas of the moods of the oceans and their primal connection to humankind. Vaughan Williams painted this powerful music and set it to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and A Passage to India. Chorus and soloists join the orchestra, led by Robert Spano. Plus a world premiere by Grawemeyer Award-winner George Tsontakis featuring DSO Senior Principal Associate Concertmaster Gary Levinson.

“He seems the most comprehensively gifted American conductor to emerge since James Levine, Michael Tilson Thomas and Leonard Slatkin.”
Los Angeles Times
