|BÉLA BARTÓK||Piano Concerto No. 2 in G major, Sz. 95|
|PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY||Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64|
|Additional works TBD|
Conductor Robert Spano (Conducting ’85) reunites with “force of nature” Yefim Bronfman (Piano ’77) to perform Béla Bartók’s ferocious Second Piano Concerto. Bronfman, a recent addition to the Curtis faculty, won a GRAMMY Award for his recording of the concerto. The program continues with Tchaikovsky’s brooding Fifth Symphony. In this work, resolve and sweeping optimism clash against bouts of steely melancholy.
Orchestral concerts are supported by the Jack Wolgin Curtis Orchestral Concerts Endowment Fund.
Guest conductor appearances for each Curtis Symphony Orchestra performance are made possible by the Rita E. and Gustave M. Hauser Chair in Conducting Studies..
