On our end-of-January 2014 concert, Young Artist Kent William Hisada played the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto:

“So, here was a regional orchestra, focused and intent, led by a seasoned professional, offering a concert of challenging music…. And, we were witness to a clearly gifted young violinist surmounting with talent and panache one of the repertoire’s most challenging concertos. For a Friday evening’s entertainment in Concord, what more could one want?”

BSO hornist Gus Sebring played the 2nd Horn Concerto by Richard Strauss with us in March 2014. Strauss #2 is performed less often than than the Strauss #1 — it’s beautiful but quite difficult. Gus was brilliant and it was a thrill to accompany him, especially for the horn section members who know the part by heart. (Your blog admin is one of those horn players.)
