Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic kicks off its 47th season at Church of the Epiphany in Washington DC with two special pieces. Local Virginia composer Ben Roundtree's five movement Symphony No. 1, based on five of Roundtree's spiritual and inspirational heroes and mentors, leads this first program of the season. Then the Philharmonic teams with rising local star violinist Leonid Sushansky to perform Tchaikovsky's beloved virtuoso Violin Concerto. Overall lyrical, the concerto is in turns graceful and brilliant, then elegaic, and finishes with a dazzling display of pyrotechnics.
