The National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Christoph Eschenbach, combines the old with the new in a program featuring two of the most beloved symphonies in the orchestral canon and a recent work by rising star composer Avner Dorman. Dvorak's Ninth Symphony, subtitled From the New World, was one of the first symphonies to incorporate American musical influences, and it's been wildly popular ever since its premiere in 1893. Mozart's Symphony No. 35 "Haffner" was one of the last symphonies that he composed, and one of the most acclaimed by critics and fans alike. Dorman's Frozen in Time premiered in 2007, and the soloist in that concert was the same one who'll be performing with the NSO: percussionist Martin Grubinger. Learn More
