SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3, "Organ"
Hollywood sneaks into Powell Hall. John Williams was working on scores for Steven Spielberg’s earliest films when he wrote his Violin Concerto. Popular soloist James Ehnes joins the SLSO for this performance. Barber’s Adagio has moved audiences in movies such as Platoon and Amélie, and Saint-Saëns gave “everything I was able to give” to a symphony of truly cinematic scope.
