February 10 is date night at Hopeless Romantics. Bring someone special to experience two Romantic composers’ dramatic and lush music. Johannes Brahms’ Double Concerto features Lawrence Golan on violin and cellist Matthew Zalkind who was praised by The New York Times for his “impressive refinement, eloquent phrasing, and singing tone.” Brahm’s Double Concerto is paired with Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s rich and colorful symphonic poem, Symphony No. 4.
Lawrence Golan, conductor and violin
Scott O’Neil, guest conductor
Matthew Zalkind, cello
