The Bellevue Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) will feature violinist Kyung Sun Lee as soloist in the final concerts of the 2007-2008 Masterworks@Meydnebauer series, part of the BPO’s fortieth anniversary season on April 12 and 13.

Titled “Around the World,” the concerts, under the direction of BPO music director Fusao Kajima, feature music from Russia, Hungary, France, and Japan.

Borodin’s Polovtsian March from Prince Igor features influences from indigenous music of the Russian steppe, Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole draws on Spanish dances and rhythms, while Wada’s Folkloric Suite combines traditional Japanese folk music with Western orchestration. Liszt’s tone poem Les Preludes concludes the concerts.

Symphonie Espagnole will feature violinist Lee.

Lee is seen frequently on concert stages around the world. During the last few seasons she performed the concerti of Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Sibelius, and Bartók (No. 2), the double concerti of both Bach and Mendelssohn and the Four Seasons of Vivaldi.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12, and Sunday, April 13, and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Theatre at Meydenbauer, downtown Bellevue.
