Renowned pianist Anne-Marie McDermott joins us for two of Mozart’s greatest concertos, and the evening comes to a climax with the passionate “Great” G minor Symphony.
Few composers unite the heart and the mind like Johannes Brahms, and few works demonstrate this fusion of emotion and intellect more than the composer’s powerful final symphony. His Academic Festival Overture, on the other hand, delivers an intricately-structured collection of songs that sparkle with wit and humor.
Join in our thrilling celebration of the joy, energy, and diversity of American music. Tap your feet to dance music from Still and Copland, be awed by Joan Tower’s response to Copland’s famous fanfare, and thrill to the Coltrane-inspired virtuosity of John Adams’ spirited Saxophone Concerto.
