Hailed as "the pre-eminent guitarist of our time," multi Grammy Award-winner Sharon Isbin joins the DSO in jazz phenom Chris Brubeck's recently debuted Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra. In rare presentation, Leonard Slatkin leads Gustav Mahler's poignant unfinished Tenth Symphony, masterfully reconstructed for the composer's centenary in 1960 by famed British musicologist Deryck Cooke.

ConcerTalk 4/6 at 6:30 PM; 4/8 at 7 PM; & 4/9 at 2 PM: Get the most out of each Classical concert with informal presentations in Orchestra Hall one hour before the performance begins.
