Tom Hormel: Legend of Bird Mountain, World Premiere Korngold: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra Tessa Lark, violin Strauss: Also sprach Zarathustra Pre-Concert Chat with Ian Fraser in the hall at 3:30pm The SFSO is proud to present the world premiere of local composer/pianist, Tom Hormels beautiful ballet, The Legend of Bird Mountain. His eclectic taste is evident in this foray into romantic music with a broad range of emotional energy that is driven by visits to Middle Eastern motifs. Naumburg Competition winner, Tessa Lark, joins the Symphony to perform Korngolds lush Violin Concerto on the 1683 ex-Gingold Stradivari violin. Her combination of a rich, robust sound, even high in the register, technical control and phrasing that makes even the quickest presto seem unrushed, and a sense of surety seasoned with a distinctive personality, makes Lark stand out from Americas talented pack of young virtuosos. This is a special artist. Milton Moore - The Day
