Sorgi & Thomason vs. Mid Texas Symphony In Saturday's 'Superbow'

An interview with Craig Sorgi and Eliza Thomason

Mozart and Schubert on tap in New Braunfels Saturday night

The Mid Texas Symphony continues their 35th season with "Superbows" -- the music of Mozart and Schubert. Featured in Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante is violinist Craig Sorgi and violist Eliza Thomason.

"The second movement is just an incredibly poetic and emotionally deep movement to play."

"There's a lot of interplay between the two instruments, a lot of give and take, and imitation between the violin and viola," says Sorgi. Thomason adds, "It's been a really fun process!"

The two will return to their chairs in the orchestra for the lilting Symphony No. 5 by Franz Schubert on the second half of the concert. David Mairs directs the concert at the Brauntex Theater.
