Music Director Laureate Leonard Slatkin leads the DSO through a program of three favorites beginning with Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments. Penning the piece as a tribute to the late Claude Debussy, Stravinsky once remarked, “The musicians of my generation and I myself owe the most to Debussy.”

Béla Bartók’s enduring Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta follows, featuring two separate groups of strings playing in response to one another. The program closes with pianist Garrick Ohlsson performing Brahms’s commanding First Piano Concerto, a piece that represented a large step out of Beethoven’s shadow and into the composer’s own legacy.

...an incredible technique with razor sharp accuracy, producing a sound so lush it almost glistens. ”
