About The Concert

The Moldau and Blaník from Smetana’s popular set of symphonic poems depict a scenic river and mountain in the composer’s homeland. Brilliant guitarist Jason Vieaux performs two works composed 200 years apart – a cheerful concerto by Vivaldi and Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, which is "animated by a rhythmic spirit and vigour.” An excerpt from Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 will evoke the delicacy of wildflowers.
