John Adams, one of the leading composers of our time, steps onto the podium to lead the Dallas Symphony Orchestra this week in a program including two of his own works as well as two beloved items from the early twentieth century.

The concert will open with one of Adams’ most often performed works, his aptly titled Short Ride in a Fast Machine, after which violinist Leila Josefowicz will join Adams and the orchestra for Adams’ Violin Concerto of 1995. In a very interesting choice of works to complement his own music, Adams will also conduct Debussy’s Danses sacrée et profane, with DSO principal harpist Emily Levin as soloist, as well as Respighi’s Feste romane. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at Meyerson Symphony Center.; 214-692-0203.; 214-692-0203.
