Seattle Symphony

Violinist Arabella Steinbacher takes on Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, beloved for its brilliant virtuosity and finesse. R. Strauss’ early tone poem Aus Italien evokes the charm of Italy, at last receiving its Seattle Symphony debut. Tianyi Lu conducts fellow New Zealander Salina Fisher’s Tupaia, inspired by the Polynesian navigator who aided James Cook’s Pacific voyage.
