[ezcol_2third]Beauty, powerful rhythmic energy and breathless joy all describe Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. Its first performance was met with “applause that rose the point of ecstasy,” according to a contemporary newspaper account. Dylana Jenson, the first American woman to win the Silver Medal in the Tchaikovsky Competition, brings her talisman, the Shostakovich Violin Concerto, to perform with her husband, the Pasadena Symphony’s very own Music Director, David Lockington.

“Jenson’ recording (Shostakovich) reveals a richly communicative voice… Urgently recommended.” – Fanfare Magazine
