Paavo Järvi returns to Music Hall for the first time since receiving his final cheers as CSO Music Director in sold-out concerts in May 2011. Brahms’ revered Second Symphony, often described as the happiest of the composer’s symphonies, is the perfect showcase for the energizing artistry of Järvi with your orchestra. A favorite of CSO audiences, pianist Stewart Goodyear returns to perform a vividly imagined concerto whose shimmering colors, lush harmonies and technical fireworks place Lutoslawski’s music squarely among the masters.
THURS DINNER & CONCERT: Complimentary pre-concert light dinner buffet in the Ballroom for all ticketholders. Doors open at 6:15 pm; concert at 7:30 pm. No RSVP required. (Menu)
