PHILIPPE QUINT, VIOLIN; VSO/ JAMES GAFFIGAN
Young Russian/American violinist Philippe Quint has a pure and refined tone and a natural expressiveness, ideal for the Mozart concerto. He has also performed a large number of modern American concertos. James Gaffigan returns to the VSO to conduct Shostakovich’s massive ‘Leningrad’ symphony after conducting Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ last time.
