Works by BACH | YSAŸE | KREISLER | HINDEMITH | NEUKOM
“This concert is my first recital without any assisting artists, which I have wanted to do for some time as a significant personal and professional challenge,” says DPO Concertmaster Jessica Hung. The program includes works from five composers.
Bach’s Partita No. 3 in E major for solo violin consists of six movements. The first movement (Preludio) is the one perhaps most recorded. Made up almost entirely of sixteenth notes, it makes intense demands on the soloist.
Eugene Ysaÿe’s Sonata for Solo Violin in A minor is a four-movement sonata for solo violin, in the composer’s words “...runs the gamut of the emotions in order to express them all." Fritz Kreisler knew Eugene Ysaÿe and dedicated the only work he ever composed for solo violin, his Recitative and Scherzo-Caprice for Solo Violin, an homage to Ysaÿe.
More widely known for his Symphony: Mathis der Maler, Paul Hindemith composed his Sonata for Solo Violin in G minor between 1917 and 1919.
Composer Sean Neukom, a former classmate of Ms. Hung at the Cleveland Institute of Music, has written a brand new solo violin sonata, his Solo Sonata No. 5, specifically for Jessica to premiere at this concert!

Rubber Soul and Revolver were the sixth and seventh Beatles albums, both brilliant artistic achievements showcasing the group’s developing musical vision.
The two recordings stand in stark contrast—Rubber Soul presented a more refined, acoustic side, whereas Revolver was tougher and more electric than previous releases and showed the quickly evolving genius of the Beatles as a studio band.
Now, the über-talented rock ensemble and Dayton fan favorites Jeans 'n Classics take the stage with your DPO for an evening of high-energy artistry celebrating the music of these two influential Beatles albums.
Featuring Neil Donell and David Blamires on lead vocals, two female backup vocalists, and six instrumental musicians, Jeans 'n Classics (and the full DPO under the direction of Neal Gittleman) will perform two sets: Rubber Soul on the first and Revolver on the second.
It’s a concert replete with wonderful songs that, regardless of your age, you’ll be able to connect to some of your best memories.
