Netanel Draiblate

The tragic overtones of Wagner’s Tristan & Isolde will be joyfully relieved by the optimism of Beethoven’s lighter, bravado-inspired Symphony No. 8. Emotions will be stirred with the immortal and virtuosic expressions of Brahms’ Violin Concerto played by newly appointed concertmaster Netanel Draiblate.

Passion, lyricism and pathos all join together in the remarkable Symphony No. 40 by Mozart, the “miracle that God let be born in Salzburg.” Life and death coexist in the highly expressive and mysterious Valse Triste by Sibelius, and this season’s young soloist Catherine Winters performs the Nielsen flute concerto.
