Dvorák’s New World Symphony is among the most recognizable and well-loved orchestral works ever written, its passion and fire balanced with moving serenity.

Elena Urioste, soloist in the Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 with the CSO, feels the often-performed work can be taken for granted. “It’s an incredibly beautiful piece,” she said. “It’s very sincere. It’s touching, and it should be treated with as much respect as any other big violin concerto.” Read more at Sounds & Stories.
