CONCERT DETAILS

Conductor Ruth Reinhardt makes her MSO debut on this program, which includes Dvořák’s pastoral Fifth Symphony — listen for hunting horns, folk dances, and a storm rumbling through its climactic finale. These concerts begin with Lotta Wennäkoski’s “Flounce” — a pulsing work characterized by, in the composer’s words, both “brisk gestures” and “passages of lace-like ornamenting” — and conclude with Brahms’s blockbuster Second Piano Concerto.

 

The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
