PROGRAM

Sarasota Orchestra concludes the Masterworks season with a program of heroic proportions. Internationally acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham shines in one of his signature works, Korngold’s sweeping, cinematic Violin Concerto. The orchestra is the real star of Richard Strauss’ virtuosic tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life). This thinly veiled musical autobiography includes snippets of Strauss’ greatest hits and has been thrilling audiences for 125 years. The concert begins with a world premiere by Sarah Gibson, recipient of a commission from the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation to champion promising female composers.


Mattison’s offers pre-show dining for Friday and Saturday evening performances as the official caterer at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
