Program has rarities from Chabrier and Ives
While this weekend's program is setup traditionally as an overture, concerto and symphony, the music is more than just everyday. "If anything is typical, it's the concerto that we're playing, the Lalo Symphonie Espagnole, which itself isn't typical, but it's the one where people might know the melodies," says Karen Kamensek.
The return of this former Houston Opera conductor to Texas also welcomes an American gem, Charles Ives' Symphony No. 2.
