Hans Graf takes the podium for Tchaikovsky's Pathétique with the Houston Symphony. ''Pathétique'' means passionate in French, and the composition is indeed passionate and sweeping. Joining Graf will be his friend violinist Leonidas Kavakos, who performs Shostakovich's 1st Violin Concerto. Kavakos has been on the world stage since he was a teen; he won the Sibelius Competition in 1985 and the Paganini Competition three years later.
