Kim's Bruch, DMSO's Dukas, Berlioz

Aug 18, 2013

Tune in tonight at 7 for three Romantic masterpieces from the Des Moines Symphony. Benny Kim, a Quad Cities native who now has a major national career, solos in Bruch's Violin Concerto no. 1; and music director Joseph Giunta conducts Dukas's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (based on a poem by Goethe about the dangers of "a little learning") and Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique (a wild ride through love gone very, very wrong). The broadcast is part of IPR's Symphonies of Iowa series, produced and hosted by Jacqueline Halbloom.

Benny Kim - the rising young violinist born in Moline and trained by Doris Preucil of the Preucil School in Iowa City (and by Dorothy DeLay, teacher of Itzhak Perlman).
