Barber's brilliant overture was inspired by an 18th century comedy about love. Piazzolla broke boundaries when he fused tango, jazz, and classical music in this seductive work for violin. Our soloist, Giora Schmidt, has been described as impossible to resist. The finale, Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2, is a masterpiece so expressive it will seduce you.
