Philharmonic Fall Concert
Sunday October 22 3 pm Church of the Epiphany (DC)
Sunday October 29 3 pm George Washington Masonic National Memorial (Alexandria)
Ben Roundtree, Symphony No. 1 “Heroes”
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Violin Concerto, op. 35 in D major, Leonid Sushansky, Violin
WMP kicks off its 47th season with two special pieces. Local Virginia composer Ben Roundtree’s five movement Symphony No. 1, based on five of Roundtree’s spiritual and inspirational heroes and mentors, leads this first program of the season. Then the Philharmonic teams with rising local star violinist Leonid Sushansky to perform Tchaikovsky’s beloved virtuoso Violin Concerto. Overall lyrical, the concerto is in turns graceful and brilliant, then elegaic, and the piece finishes with a dazzling display of pyrotechnics.
