Two of France’s greatest composers Maurice Ravel and Jules Massenet each authored a masterpiece that will share the plate of our Menu 2. Springing from emotional poles these two pieces employ a common means of delivery, the virtuoso violin.
Violinist Susanna Perry Gilmore has been hailed as both “thrilling and sensitive”, “luminous and hypnotic” She will perform Tzigane of Ravel and Meditation of Massenet with the Omaha Symphony on January 19, 7:30 pm at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
