2:00 pm Verizon Hall

Once more, one of America's most acclaimed and most frequently performed living composers, Philadelphian Jennifer Higdon, graces us with a brilliant new work, this time for those stalwarts of the brass section, the trombones and tuba. Hear them shine in this rare turn in the spotlight. Beethoven's Eighth Symphony may seem overshadowed by the magnificent Ninth that followed, but there's compositional genius (and humor) to burn here. Zoltán Kodály's Dances of Marosszék are the rural counterpart of Brahms's more urbane Hungarian Dances; they make wonderful bookends for this strikingly original program.

These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.

Please join us for a Postlude performance immediatly after the concert with members of The Philadelphia Orchestra. View Postlude program information here.
