Symphony, violinist shine in season opener

The Spokane Symphony brought brilliance and intensity to its season-opening concert Saturday night at The Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Flashy works are standard fare for opening night programs, but conductor Eckart Preu and the orchestra’s players gave their near-capacity opening-night audience music of real substance, too, in orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich. Violinist Philippe Quint, originally scheduled to perform here last season, proved well worth the wait playing Glazunov’s Violin Concerto.

Noted violinist set to perform with Spokane Symphony

Philippe Quint was scheduled to perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto as a part of the Spokane Symphony’s Beethoven Bash last season. But a budget-induced reshuffling caused a year’s delay in his appearance. “Don’t worry, we will have him here,” Music Director Eckart Preu said at the time.

Classical music season looks promising despite financial woes

The Spokane Symphony informally launched the local classical music season with a Labor Day weekend performance at Liberty Lake – but not its traditional concert at Comstock Park, canceled for budget reasons. Still, despite budget pressures affecting all arts organizations, area audiences can look forward to plenty of classical music this fall.
