What's Interesting

  • Tchaikovsky’s dazzling Concerto, once thought unplayable, is a rendezvous with some of the composer’s most moving and memorable melodies.
  • Guest violinist Gil Shaham is one of the most talented, expressive and exuberant musicians in the world today. He's a true joy to watch as well as hear.
  • Stravinsky’s Petrouchka is a virtuosic musical tale evocative of Pinocchio.
  • Julia Wolfe won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Anthracite Fields, a work about early-20th Century Pennsylvania coal-miners and their families. She's known for her "evocative orchestrations and varied sound palettes" (The New York Times). NEW: Hear Wolfe's Fountain of Youth as performed by the New World Symphony, which co-commissioned this work with the CSO.
