- Conductor Ruth Reinhardt is “an incisive musician of real depth” (The Dallas Morning News) and has quickly grown a reputation for her musical intelligence, programmatic imagination, and elegant performances.
- Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, composed without a piano to express “more transparent orchestral colors,” derives its nickname from the composer’s wish that one day the symphony “might itself turn out to be a classic.”
- Grażyna Bacewicz’s Concerto for String Orchestra is explosive and sweeping, commonly regarded as her magnum opus or even her “Ninth Symphony.”
- Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 recounts the composer’s time in Italy, evoking the vast Italian countryside and interpreting traditional Italian dance music in a whirlwind finale.
