    It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of dear DSO friend, legendary Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. He was truly one of the greats, and we are honored and humbled to have shared our stage with him for many, many years.

    Our full performance of Frühbeck de Burgos leading Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 is now here and on our YouTube channel in his loving memory.
