It's our summer of broadcast performances from the Philharmonic's 2016-17 season, and you'll hear it Sundays at 2 p.m. 

Music Director Donato Cabrera is your guide through full-length performances of many masterworks in the field of classical music.  Just ahead on Classical 89.7:

• June 25:  Cabrera Conducts Dvorak

DvorakThe Las Vegas Philharmonic goes tribal as they celebrated Donato’s birthday with the West Coast premiere of Clarice Assad’s overture, Nhanderú, a musical portrait of an Amazon basin ritual that focuses on faith, prayer, and gratitude.  Nathaniel Stookey’s orchestral version of YTTE (Yield to Total Elation), a piece inspired by the story of A.G. Rizzoli, a humble draftsman who created elaborate designs for a vast imaginary city, receives its world premiere.  

Finally, one of Donato’s favorite pieces, Antonin Dvořák’s  Symphony No. 7, creates a fantastic counterpoint as the centerpiece for the second half of this celebratory concert.  Known for its dramatic expression and brooding atmosphere, this is perhaps one of Dvořák’s most personal, self-explorative works.
