Images of Europe
Over the last five decades, the Grand Teton Music Festival has provided audiences opportunities to hear young stars on their way to major careers. This concert will do just that with young Simone Porter performing the virtuosic Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. The concert opens with one of the most pastoral, bucolic depictions of the English countryside in symphonic literature, Vaughan Williams’ fifth symphony. Debussy’s highly evocative portrayal of Ibéria rounds out the Images of Europe.
