We welcome Houston Symphony Music Director Hans Graf, who will tell us about the two very different but equally moving choral-orchestral works the Symphony will present on its first Classical Series concerts of the new season this weekend in Jones Hall: John Adams’ September-Eleventh memorial piece, On the Transmigration of Souls, and Beethoven’s Ninth. . .
We’ll also speak with Latina writer, Graciela Lim?n, about her dark, disturbing, but psychologically-probing novel, Left Alive, about a young man who was the only survivor when his mother killed all of her children but him. . . . And Doctor Peter Bondanella of Indiana University talks about the phantasmagorical vision of the late Italian film-maker, Federico Fellini, all of whose movies are being shown in a six-week-long retrospective at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
Join us each weekday afternoon at 3:00 for an up-close look at the Houston area arts scene on The Front Row.
