What's Interesting

  • Grammy winners Eighth Blackbird and the CSO premiere music from Kinds of Kings, a collective of US-based composers focused on amplifying and advocating for underrepresented voices.
  • A richly personal overture from Janáček opens the program. Janáček didn’t complete a major score until age fifty, remaining one of music’s latest bloomers.
  • Dvořák’s searching and dramatic Seventh is a wonder of the symphonic repertoire. He wanted to create music that "must be capable of stirring the world."
