Cuban composer Leo Brouwer (known for scoring the film Like Water for Chocolate) has written prolifically for the guitar, and Justin Hoke makes his WSO debut playing Brouwer’s Concierto Elegiaco. The Symphony rounds out the season with Dmitri Shostakovich’s sparkling music for the Soviet film The Gadfly, including "Romance" with its beautiful solo violin melody that is know to TV audiences as the theme music for the PBS mini-series Reilly, Ace of Spies!
