Sunday, January 22, 7:30 p.m.
Scheherazade
Michael Stern, conductor
+Michelle DeYoung, mezzo-soprano

BARBER: Medea: Ballet Suite
RAVEL: Shéhérazade+
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Scheherazade

Tales of two women—one wronged and murderously vengeful, the other a sharp-witted spinner of spellbinding stories—inspired three composers to set these legends to exotic music.

Sunday, February 5, 7:30 p.m.
Grieg Piano Concerto
Eri Klas, conductor
+Benedetto Lupo, piano

TUBIN: Estonian Dance Suite
SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 1
SIBELIUS: Valse triste
GRIEG: Piano Concerto+

This program alternates light and dark, shifting from frothy dance music to the rich, dark sounds of Shostakovich and back again to sunlight and happiness with Grieg’s stunning Piano Concerto.

Sunday, February 26, 3 p.m.
Latin Jazz with the Mambo Kings
Jeff Tyzik, conductor

Fusing Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz improv, the Mambo Kings bring the fresh, modern sound of Latin jazz to the Symphony. This group is fast earning a national reputation as explosive, vibrant, and hot, hot, hot. These Mambo Kings can really cook!

Sunday, March 12, 2 p.m.
Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 1
Stefan Solyom, conductor
+Yakov Kasman, piano
STRAVINSKY: Concerto in E-flat (Dumbarton Oaks)
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 1, F-sharp minor+
TCHAIKOVSKY: Suite No. 3 for Orchestra, G major

Pianist Yakov Kasman, whose heroic cross-country flight saved Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto last season, returns for another heart-stopping performance in this all-Russian program. You’ll also love this unknown little gem by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky’s tribute to the Baroque.

Sunday, April 9, 2 p.m.
Mysteries of Time and Space
Carlos Kalmar, conductor
+Niel DePonte, marimba
HAYDN: Symphony No. 101 D major, “Clock”
CRESTON: Concertino for Marimba+
SCHWANTNER: Aftertones of Infinity
JOSEPH STRAUSS: Music of the Spheres Waltz

This program will evoke memories of velvety-dark nights spent contemplating a starry sky with planets eternally moving with clock-like regularity. The lively marimba concerto suggests a brilliant meteorite shower!
