Anna Lee, violin
Rossini William Tell Overture
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5
Since her last appearance in Peoria, violin virtuoso Lee has appreared with the New York Philharmonic and won top honors at the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition. She returns with a passionate performance of Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto -- a concerto so beloved in Madrid in 1935 that they sent a delegation to Russia to personally thank Prokofiev. The PSO shows its own passion and perfectionism in Rossini's William Tell Overture and Tchaikovsky's monumental Fifth Symphony.
