BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 2 & 3 (3/21, 3/22)
BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 1 & 9 (4/2, 4/4, 4/5)
The Orchestra celebrates the 250th birthday of Beethoven by performing two of his symphonies alongside music by composers of today in dialogue with those symphonies. Among them are Composer-in- Residence Gabriela Lena Frank and a diverse group of composers from her Creative Academy of Music.
Thibaudet and Liszt (4/17-4/18)
The program includes Anna Clyne‘s imaginative This Midnight Hour. Highlighting the power of the lower strings, it evokes the journey of a mysterious woman “stripped bare, running mad through the night.”
Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich (4/30-5/2)
The program includes The Garden of Dreams: Hommage to Shostakovich by composer Elena Firsova, who was blacklisted and exiled from the Soviet Union in the latter part of the 20th century.
Elektra (5/15, 5/17, 5/19)
The performance features a cast of vocal powerhouses, including Christine Goerke. She sings the title role, a tormented daughter obsessed with avenging the death of her father, Agamemnon.
Yuja Wang and the Brahms Piano Concertos (5/28-5/31)
The fiery Yuja Wang, a Curtis Institute of Music graduate, brings her technical virtuosity and thoughtful depth of music-making to Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 3.
