Upcoming encore broadcasts include:
August 24th: A concert featuring the warm music of Russia’s greatest composers: the passion of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Stravinsky’s brilliant The Fairy’s Kiss Divertimento, and violinist Stefan Jackiw’s interpretation of Prokofiev’s opulent Violin Concerto.
August 31st: This program center’s around Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” one of the most popular and moving symphonies of all time! Add two other heavyweights – Beethoven and powerhouse pianist Yefim Bronfman – and you’re set for an incredible concert.
September 7th: Dvorak’s Cello Concerto, the most popular and most performed cello concerto of all time, pairs with an exciting new work – and second world premiere of this Anniversary Season – from Portland composer Kenji Bunch, heralded by The New York Times as “a composer to watch.” Hear the piece that Northwest Reverb noted, “stole the spotlight from fine performances of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto and Barber’s Souveniers.”
