Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2

Masterworks Series >

Crippling self-doubt and scars from scathing reviews almost silenced Rachmaninov as a composer, but he fought his way back to create his rapturous Second Symphony, a work saturated with heart-wrenching beauty. In her new concerto, composer Angelique Poteat envisions a timely musical discourse in which the cello “strives to promote art, expression and free will in an orchestral swarm of oppression, close-mindedness and uncertainty.”

Beethoven & Ravel

Chamber Series >

Beethoven’s Piano Trio No. 5 is often called the “Ghost Trio” due to the spectral atmosphere of the second movement.

Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

Masterworks Series >

With howling harmonies, gut-punching rhythms and a prehistoric plot that builds to the pagan sacrifice of a virgin dancing herself to death, it’s no wonder that Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring set off a riot at its first performance. Thomas Dausgaard, leading an oversized orchestra, lets loose all the physicality and wild abandon embedded in this earthshaking ballet.
