PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Markus Stenz
, conductor | Juho Pohjonen, piano

It's a night of all classics featuring three of history's greatest composers. Schumann's triumphant Symphony No. 2, written during a period of great struggle, is a rousing affirmation of his originality and creativity. The premiere of this piece was conducted by Mendelssohn, who's represented here with his vivid musical interpretation of two Goethe poems. Internationally award-winning pianist Juho Pohjonen takes the spotlight in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23, which features some of the most poignant and refined music of this brilliant composer's career.

Aaron Jay Kernis – Symphony No. 4, “Chromelodeon”  Live Recording
Barber – Cello Concerto
Beethoven –­ Symphony No. 7

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | Alban Gerhardt, cello

There's nothing quite like the thrill of hearing Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 performed live. One of the composer's most enduring works, this rhythm-driven tour-de-force culminates in a powerhouse finale that will leave your heart racing. You'll also want to be here for a LIVE recording of Pulitzer Prize winner Aaron Jay Kernis' Symphony No. 4, his alternately thoughtful and colorful response to "living in the chaos of the world today." Hailed by The Guardian as "infinitely classy," world-renowned soloist Alban Gerhardt will perform Barber's lyrical and poignant Cello Concerto.

Aaron Jay Kernis’ Symphony No. 4 was commissioned by the Nashville Symphony and the New England Conservatory.
