Listen to virtuoso violinist Ryu Goto perform live from Carnegie Hall with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4th.

Ryu Goto has been performing in Japan since age 7 and is now making his Carnegie Hall debut at age 21. But it's not his debut with Orpheus--Ryu played with the group during their 2008 tour of Asia. The program is packed tight with virtuosic material that is sure to make for an invigorating performance.

Program Details:

Igor Stravinsky: Octet
Max Bruch: Concerto No. 1 in G Minor for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 26
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 36

Congratulations to violinist Mr. Ryu Goto on your upcoming concert tonight at 8 pm, Tuesday, May 4th, at Carnegie Hall, with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. You should have a long major international career. You are performing at Carnegie at the right time in the right place.
