Sir Simon Rattle leads the London Symphony Orchestra for their debut performance of George Walker’s 'Lilacs', with soprano Nicole Cabell, and also in Schumann's Symphony No. 2 in C, op. 61. (Part of the WFMT Orchestra Series)
Music Director Riccardo Muti leads works by William Grant Still and Florence Price, the first African American composers to have symphonic works performed by major orchestras. The program begins with Beethoven’s Overture to Egmont and Fourth Symphony, followed by Still’s Mother and Child and Price’s Third Symphony.
Nina Stemme and Johannes Martin Kränzle are the soloists in dramatic production of Bartók’s one-act opera Bluebeard’s Castle, conducted by Music Director Jaap van Zweden. Also on the program is an equally dark work composed in the same year: Schoenberg’s apprehensive monodrama Erwartung.
Ludovic Morlot leads Shostakovich’s epic 10th Symphony and is joined by formidable pianist Sergio Tiempo for Prokofiev’s jaw-dropping Piano Concerto No. 1.
