A former OSM Competition winner, the charismatic Canadian violinist Blake Pouliot joins forces with the Orchestra in Barber’s Violin Concerto. A masterpiece at turns lyrical or introspective, its last movement driven by a rhythmic fury, this concerto is an unquestionable tour de force for the soloist. The Negro Folk Symphony by African-American composer William Levi Dawson delivers a unique fusion of spirituals and post-Romantic symphonic aesthetics, with a few discreet nods to European composers.
