March 17-18, 2023
FELIX MENDELSSOHN: Die schöne Melusine ("The Fair Melusine")
ERICH WOLFGANG KORNGOLD: Violin Concerto
ALEXANDER VON ZEMLINSKY: Die Seejungfrau ("The Mermaid")
Violinist Randall Goosby debuts with Tchaikovsky and the CSO’s might is unleashed in Prokofiev’s brassy Third.
JULIA PERRY: Homunculus CF
PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY: Violin Concerto
SERGEI PROKOFIEV: Symphony No. 3
Julia Perry’s Homunculus C.F. starts off whisper-quiet, tinkering in a laboratory of percussion. The program’s crescendo builds with Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto and acclaimed American soloist Randall Goosby—an artist with “exquisite tone and sheer virtuosity” (The New York Times). The concert reaches its zenith in Prokofiev’s Third Symphony as the muscle of the Orchestra is unleashed to its brassy and boisterous max.
