Vallejo Symphony Concert II - Iconoclast
Harris Symphony No. 3. Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2, Amalia Hall, violin. Dvorák Symphony No. 8. Premiered by the Boston Symphony in 1939, Roy Harris’s Symphony No. 3 set the bar for a unique American sound, with spacious textures and gorgeous harmonies that evoke our wide-open landscapes. Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, another masterpiece from the 1930s, features one of the most beautiful slow movements ever composed. We are excited to present international violin virtuoso Amalia Hall as our soloist. We finish with Dvorák’s Symphony No. 8, deeply inspired by Czech folk traditions. Underneath its sunny and genial nature, a new form of composition takes shape, where melody dictates structure.
