José Luis Gomez, conductor
Lauren Roth, violin

Respighi: Fountains of Rome
Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1
Strauss: Death and Transfiguration

TSO Concertmaster Lauren Roth will make her Classic Series debut performing one of the most popular violin concertos in the repertory, Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 on a program with two popular tone poems: Bruch’s colleague, Ottorino Respighi, composed one of the most eminent examples of the symphonic poem, his musical interpretation of four of the Fountains of Rome at the time of day when they are at their most beautiful. In Death and Transfiguration, Richard Strauss spectacularly captured life in the form of a tone poem, rich with melodies and harmonies from fine, nuanced pianissimos to lavish crescendos.

José Luis Gomez is the young Venezuelan-born, Spanish conductor catapulted to worldwide attention when he won First Prize at the International Sir Georg Solti Conductor’s Competition in Frankfurt in September 2010 in a rare unanimous decision from the jury. This will be his second appearance with the TSO.
