Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève leads a program that combines treasured masterworks with fresh discoveries from two of Russia’s iconic composers. The great young Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin makes his subscription debut with Tchaikovsky’s beloved First Piano Concerto. Our legendary former Music Director Leopold Stokowski arranged the Andante cantabile second movement from Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 for string orchestra, and created a Symphonic Synthesis from Musorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov. We conclude with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, the most vivid depiction of a battle you’ll ever hear in a concert hall (and rarely hear on a subscription program)!
