Joining the Orchestra as the soloist for the evening’s program will be violinist and concert master MICHAEL LUDWIG.

The Buffalo Philharmonic, which celebrated its 75th Anniversary Season last year, continue to build on its rising profile as one the most artistically vibrant, innovative ensembles in the US. Under the leadership of its renowned Music Director, JOANN FALLETTA, lauded by the New York Times as “one of the finest conductors of her generation,” the BPO continues to gain more international attention. Over the past decade, the ensemble has risen to a new level of national and international prominence as a result of programming, recording and outreach initiatives spearheaded in part by Maestro Falletta. Notable achievements include two Grammy awards in 2009 for a recording of Corigliano’s Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan and multiple nominations, successful tours in the US and Canada and a revival of the Philharmonic’s distinguished history of recording and of NPR broadcasts.
The evening will open with Smetana’s Overture to The Bartered Bride. Michael Ludwig will perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219, “Turkish,” and the performance will conclude with Dvorak’s popular Symphony No. 9, “From the New World.”
