Mission: To seek and share inspiration
November 17-18, 2017
HINDEMITH: Mathis der Maler ("Matthias the Painter")
GRIEG: Piano Concerto
SCHUMANN: Symphony No. 3, Rhenish
CSO Music Director Laureate Paavo Järvi returns to conduct Schumann’s expansive Third Symphony. Better known as the Rhenish, this romantic symphony paints Schumann’s impressions of Germany’s Rhineland. Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler, bravely written during the rise of Nazi Germany, glorifies artistic freedom of expression over oppression. Pianist Alice Sara Ott, full of “crystalline tone and prodigious range of color” (The Guardian), performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto, an audience favorite.
Get inside the minds of composers and to the heart of the music with Classical Conversations, one hour before Friday, Saturday and Sunday Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra subscription concerts.
