Yannick Plays Mozart
Written in 1951, just two years before her death, Florence Price's beautiful Adoration showcases the sweet serenity of strings. Violinist Joshua Bell leads the Orchestra in this stunning performance. Written following his arrival in Vienna, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12 is "very brilliant, pleasing to the ear, and natural," in the composer’s own words. Listen for its melodic opulence and thrilling cadenzas. This performance includes a special treat for audiences as Yannick leads the Orchestra from the piano. Price's fourth, and final, Symphony, never performed during her lifetime, received accolades when it received its belated premiere in 2018. The New York Times noted: "The brio of the best Americana is present throughout the work, particularly in its rousing climax."
Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons
Chausson's elegant Poème features a triumphant violin solo in this effortlessly melodic work. Audiences will delight in Vivaldi's iconic and transcendent Four Seasons, in a performance that soars to new heights with world-renowned violinist Gil Shaham, who will both perform the solo and lead the ensemble.
Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony
No matter the genre, Tchaikovsky often infused his works with the spirit of dance, including this Polonaise from his most famous opera. Tchaikovsky himself conducted the premiere of his "Pathétique" Symphony just a week before his death. Sometimes described as his own personal requiem, it lives on as one of the composer's most cherished creations.
