Barber Knoxville: Summer of 1915
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture

Expect fireworks from Tchaikovsky - Scottish violin star Nicola Benedetti in the red-blooded romantic virtuosity of the concerto and the 1812 Overture bringing up the rear. Barber's Knoxville sings of that lazy summer of 1915, the swing on the back-porch, the streetcar rattling by.
