Samuel Lee, conductor

Alice Sara Ott, piano


If Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is known as a musical embodiment of fate, his Seventh carries the spirit of freedom and liberation, with catchy, dance-like melodies woven throughout. Bryce Dessner, founder of Cincinnati’s MusicNOW Festival and a member of the Grammy-winning band The National, shares two of his works for orchestra.

Daniel Wiley, conductor

Bryce Dessner, guitar

Katia and Marielle Labèque, duo pianos


“Wires that connect us, wires that make sound and wires that separate us from one another.” – Bryce Dessner


Like an interwoven tapestry of wires, both literal and metaphorical, composer Bryce Dessner — member of Grammy-winning band The National — along with piano duo Katia and Marielle Labèque explore the 21st century sound.

Louis Langrée, conductor
Latonia Moore, soprano


In his final program as Music Director, Louis Langrée and the CSO share the stage one more time for a performance that will pay tribute to highlights of their time together over the past 11 years. Grammy Award-winning soprano Latonia Moore will join the CSO for the world premiere of a new orchestral song cycle by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Anthony Davis, whose piece You Have the Right to Remain Silent profoundly impacted Louis and left a poignant impression on livestream viewers at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The program also includes Ravel’s mythical and airy Daphnis et Chloé Suite No. 2, a work that Louis and the Orchestra performed on tour in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai in 2017; Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 2, which was last performed in 2015 as part of that season’s One City, One Symphony initiative; and Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which was a part of an all-French program that opened the Orchestra’s 2018-19 season at the newly renovated Music Hall.

Expect moving music and memories, celebrating the final performances of the CSO’s beloved Music Director.
