Quotes & Highlights
“When Conlon is leading a performance, music and drama never seem to be at odds … All of it is marked with a joyous sense of urgency.”— Opera News
This all-Russian program features two epic compositions. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 is an emotive work for soprano, bass, and string orchestra with a battery of percussion, comprised of 11 linked setting of poems that present a gripping discussion of our own mortality. This work pairs well with Ravel’s colorful orchestration of Mussorgsky’s famous work, originally written for solo piano, which helped to make famous the sights and sounds of Kiev.
The concert benefits the Orchestra’s Pension Fund.
