Hear Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, one of America's leading violinists, tonight at 7 with the Des Moines Symphony. She performs the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with what the Des Moines Register called "intense focus but a light touch... lilting through the middle section and scampering like a giddy squirrel through the finale."
Also on the progam: music from Wagner's Die Meistersinger and Franck's beautiful Symphony in D Minor. Music Director Joseph Giunta conducts on this Symphonies of Iowa encore broadcast.
