Louisville Orchestra and Adele Anthony

Gil Shaham’s favorite violinist (for obvious reasons – they’re married), Adele Anthony, played the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Louisville Orchestra, earlier this month. The orchestra also performed Richard Strauss’ first tone poem Aus Italien and the overture to Verdi’s La forza del destino. Catch the broadcast this Sunday at 6pm.

Here are the two lovebirds playing with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
