Guerro Conducts Bernstein with the Nashville Symphony
*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 03/06/2020
Like Bernstein, Kurt Weill may be best known as a composer for the theater, and his Violin Concerto likewise showcases his unique sensibilities as a composer for the concert stage. Nashville Symphony concertmaster Jun Iwasaki will take center stage as soloist on a technically dazzling part that contrasts strikingly with Weill's imaginatively scored backdrop of wind instruments. Opening the concert is Adjustable Wrench, a lively piece by contemporary composer Michael Torke, whose own work — like Bernstein’s and Weill’s — incorporates the influences of jazz and popular music.
