Bruckner Orchester Linz
Dennis Russell Davies, music director and conductor

Mondavi Center Presenting Program

The Bruckner Orchester Linz dives into a
fascinating mix of modern repertoire. The program begins with a suite of
music from Duke Ellington’s landmark jazz symphony, and closes with a pair
of Philip Glass works in celebration of the composer’s 80th birthday. Violin
virtuoso Robert McDuffie performs Glass’ first violin concerto and, fresh off
a world premiere at Carnegie Hall, his 11th Symphony makes its West Coast
debut under the baton of Dennis Russell Davies, an exquisite interpreter and
longtime champion of Glass’ work.
