BerliozHungarian March from the Damnation of Faust
Sibelius ∙ Concerto for Violin in D minor
Tchaikovsky ∙ Symphony No. 2 in C minor (Little Russian)

Internationally acclaimed violinist, Angelo Xiang Yu, returns to Modesto to perform Sibelius’ exceptionally beautiful Concerto for Violin in D minor. Sibelius’ only concerto perfectly combines his musical language while taking the violin to it’s limits. The evening ends with Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony. Nicknamed Little Russian, this symphony highlights Tchaikovsky’s use of blending Russian folk songs with symphonic harmonies and dramatics.
