The program was great, the solo-violinist was fantastic, but the orchestra would sound much better if the music director would fire few musicians that played false notes. The last piece (Bizet's Carmen) that I was waiting so much was a failure.
Rossini – Overture to La Gazza Ladra
Chausson – Poeme (Elisa Barston, violin)
Sibelius – Finlandia op. 26
Saint-Saens – Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso (Elisa Barston, violin)
Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliette Overture-Fantasy
Bizet – Suite No. 2 From Carmen
