Julia Perry A Short Piece for Orchestra 
Korngold Violin Concerto 
Dvořák Symphony No7 

Christian Reif Conductor 
Philippe Quint Violin 

You never quite know where music is going to take you. Erich Korngold was born in old Vienna but ended up in Hollywood, and his gorgeous Violin Concerto embraces both worlds. Dvořák got the idea for his Seventh Symphony at a Prague railway station, but it grew into one of his most personal (and dramatic) masterpieces. And in Black History Month, conductor Christian Reif celebrates a neglected classic by the American composer Julia Perry: you’ll wonder why we don’t hear it more often.
