Concertmaster Frank Huang takes the spotlight in Bruch’s romantic Violin Concerto No. 1 — its passion and bravado have made it a showcase for soloists and an audience favorite for 150 years. Also, Pablo Heras-Casado conducts Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony, filled with exuberant dance rhythms, brimming with musical sunshine, and considered by many to be his most perfect symphony.
