Budapest on the Bluff: String Theory
This all-string program ranges from the playfulness of "Papa", Haydn's recollection of the Gypsy dances of his youth, through the harrowing intensity of Kodály's monumental work for solo cello (featuring Adam Liu), reveling in the lushness of Dohnányi's virtually unknown Violin Sonata, ending with the affectionate and affecting Rumanian Dances of Bartók and the devilish showpiece Tzigane (Gypsy). PSO Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley makes his highly-anticipated debut "on the Bluff."
