ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Join us from home for the Houston Symphony’s Live from Jones Hall livestream concert series! Your purchase helps support the Symphony. You’ll receive a private online link to view live concerts by Houston Symphony musicians performing at Jones Hall on Saturdays at 8 p.m. central.

Seven Houston Symphony musicians perform the suite from Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale, which recounts a devilish fable of a violinist who sells his soul, told through a vibrant and virtuosic musical language that pushes its performers to the limit. It’s paired with a selection from Wynton Marsalis’s Fiddler’s Tale, which responds to Stravinsky’s work from the perspective of later twentieth century music. This livestream performance concludes with Schubert’s effervescent Symphony No. 2.
