Russian violinist Vadim Gluzman has been praised for his technical proficiency along with his power and passion, and he offers a thrilling performance of Brahms’s virtuosic Violin Concerto. The orchestra’s symphonic tour of Germany also features Wagner’s impassioned Flying Dutchman Overture and the colorful music of Richard Strauss – but first, the sparkling Classical perfection of Mozart’s “Haffner” Symphony uplifts and inspires. Please tune in on Sunday, February 12th at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, February 13th at 7 p.m. for this Symphonies of Iowa broadcast!
