About The Concert

Hear brilliant guitarist Jason Vieaux perform an animated and vigorous work by Spanish composer Rodrigo. You’ll also enjoy Smetana’s popular piece The Moldau, which depicts a scenic river found in the composer’s homeland.

ESO Pairings are curated concerts that are short and sweet with no intermission. The series, designed to make classical music accessible and enjoyable for everyone, serves as a great introduction to the orchestra. Our knowledgeable conductors will guide you through a musical journey, unraveling the stories behind the scores and the people who composed them. Plus, one free food or beverage item is included with every ticket.
