All You Need

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform the works of Jack Wagner, former hunk, soap-opera star and singer of the 1985 hit "All I Need." Classical musicians are finally recognizing '80s music and...what's that? Oh. Sorry. Seems the DSO is performing Wagner's symphonic highlights from his opera, The Ring. My bad. The DSO performs Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the Meyerson Symphony Center. Tickets are $15 to $100. Call 214-692-0203. --Eric Celeste

Stern Lesson
Gluzman honors a maestro

When celebrities waltz the red carpet, it's pretty common for them to wear precious stones on loan from the finest dealers. This isn't the case for most concert musicians, unless you're Vadim Gluzman. His 1690 ex-Leopold Auer Stradivarius isn't just some old fiddle. It's like the Hope Diamond of violins, and Gluzman sure knows how to wear his jewels. As a tender teen, he wooed Isaac Stern, one of the greatest violinists ever, within the first five minutes of his playing. Now, at 29, he's one of the hottest violinists on the international concert stage and his leading lady Angela Yoffe accompanies him on piano. They play Saturday at 8 p.m. in the University of Texas at Dallas Conference Center, 2601 N. Floyd Road, Richardson, during a tribute to the late Isaac Stern. Tickets are $15 to $20. Call 972-883-2787. --Desiree Henry
