RACHMANINOFF    Symphonic Dances

Don’t miss Utah’s own rising international star, William Hagen, a “brilliant virtuoso…a standout” (Dallas Morning News), performing popular showpieces by Saint-Saëns and Ravel with the Utah Symphony. Together, they’ll prepare you for the exhilarating majesty of Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, his only work fully composed in the US, yet imbued with the rhythmic energy and melancholy of his native Russia.

SAINT-SAËNS        Symphony in F Major “Urbs Roma”
SAINT-SAËNS        Piano Concerto No. 2
SAINT-SAËNS        Carnival of the Animals

French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie demonstrates his virtuosity and flair in the Second Piano Concerto. Then, musicians of the Utah Symphony join the spotlight as soloists for the inspired depictions of creatures from kangaroos and fish to tortoises and birds, culminating in the most famous musical character of all, The Swan.

MASTERWORKS 3: Mozart & Haydn, February 1, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Patrick Dupre Quigley, Conductor
Ronald Brautigam, Piano

MOZART                Overture to Così fan tutte
MOZART                Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat (“Jeunehomme”)
MOZART                Eine kleine nachtmusik
HAYDN                   Symphony No. 99 in E-Flat

Try not to smile at the unparalleled genius of Mozart and Haydn on this program of Classical-era masterpieces. Haydn’s charming and unpredictable Symphony No. 99 shares the stage with two important works by Mozart, the surprisingly mature “Jeunehomme” concerto and Eine kleine nachtmusik, a piece as popular as any in the repertoire.

MASTERWORKS 4: Shostakovich, April 26, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Thierry Fischer, Conductor
Boris Giltburg, Piano

SHOSTAKOVICH    Piano Concerto No. 1
SHOSTAKOVICH    Piano Concerto No. 2
SHOSTAKOVICH    Symphony No. 10

Experience the fascinating juxtaposition of Shostakovich’s two Piano Concerti with Russian pianist Boris Giltburg, an artist whose “athletic, passionate playing [is] often balanced by tenderness [and] suppleness” (Concerto.net). The all-Shostakovich program concludes with the earth-shattering human and political pathos of his Symphony No. 10.
