John Adams conducts Pines of Rome
For his CSO debut, Igor Levit, hailed as “the most fascinating young pianist on today’s classical music scene” (Süddeutsche Zeitung), employs his remarkable expressive powers in Beethoven’s most serene and reflective piano concerto. Also, conductor Vassily Sinaisky brings some of England’s most beloved works to Music Hall: Elgar’s Cockaigne, which the composer described as “cheerful and Londony,” and Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 6, evocative music that was performed more than 100 times in its first year.
