Inside Music, an informative talk free to ticketholders, begins one hour prior to concerts.
Meet Simon Trpceski for a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the concerts.
Former Music Director Edo de Waart returns for the first time since 1997, introducing many listeners to the music of Franz Schreker, whose lush and dramatic work could be considered a precursor to the rich film scoring we know today. Rachmaninoff’s sophisticated Fourth Piano Concerto is characteristic in its enormity, but with an unexpected modernness of sound. In a climactic work suitable for de Waart’s return, thundering Organ Symphony provides abundant thrills.
