Robert Spano, music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, leads the Curtis Chamber Orchestra in an exclusive Washington, DC appearance. Sensational violist Roberto Díaz premieres a new concerto by Jennifer Higdon, commissioned by the Library of Congress and the Curtis Institute, and Spano puts on his composer hat for a performance of his Hölderlin-Lieder. Known for playing with “great elegance and style” (The Washington Post), the orchestra rounds out the program with works by Prokofiev and Mozart.
