The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra is deeply committed to uniting its community through performance, education, and outreach, reaching an audience of more than 200,000 annually. Since its beginnings in 1912, the FWSO has been an essential thread in the city’s cultural fabric and the very foundation of Fort Worth’s performing arts.
The FWSO continues its mission with its next performance, led by guest conductor, Robert Trevino. Born in 1984, Robert Trevino’s star has risen rapidly among American conductors. The past three years have seen his appointments as Music Director of the Basque National Orchestra and Chief Conductor of the Malmo Symphony Orchestra. Most recently, he signed an exclusive, multi-year recording contract with the leading classical label, Ondine, to encompass both of Trevino’s orchestras and the full range of his artistic activities.
Recent seasons have seen Trevino crossing continents in an ever-growing number of major debuts – among them the London Symphony Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Tonhalle Zurich, San Francisco Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Detroit Symphony, Dresden Philharmonic, Sao Paulo Symphony, NHK Symphony, Toronto Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, Vienna Symphony, and so much more.
Trevino leads an all-orchestral program of works by Wagner, Bartok, and Rachmaninoff. Wagner’s transcendent Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde open the concert. Then, it is followed by Bartok’s Suite from The Miraculous Mandarin, which tells a dark tale of treachery and desire. The show concludes with Rachmaninoff’s melodic genius, and Trevino puts it on full display during the unfolding of his Second Symphony, a piece of music that is unforgettable both for its energy and its poignancy.
Can’t make it on the 28th? Luckily enough, there are also performances on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 1st. The performance is approximately two-hours with a twenty-minute intermission. Tickets start at $22.00 and can be purchased at www.fwsymphony.org.
