Mission: To Seek and Share Inspiration
April 17-18, 2020
Caroline SHAW: New Work [CSO Co-Commission]
RACHMANINOFF: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
PROKOFIEV: Symphony No. 5
What’s interesting about this concert:
• After her electrifying CSO debut in 2012, conductor Xian Zhang returns to lead a program of Russian Masterpieces.
• Rachmaninov’s piano showpiece reimagines the theme of Paganini’s Caprice No. 24.
• Prokofiev’s Fifth was hugely anticipated. His first new symphony in sixteen years came as the Russian Army was triumphantly marching into Germany to end the Second World War.
This concert is part of Series 1.
