New York Philharmonic prinicpal trombonist Joseph Alessi — a veritable rock star among American brass players — takes center stage with a work written for him by the late, great jazz legend Chick Corea, premiered with Giancarlo Guerrero in São Paolo. Szymanowski’s Concert Overture is an exuberant concert opener, and Giancarlo ties it all together with Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite, which perfectly captures the drama and heartbreak of Shakespeare’s immortal story.

Each season, we showcase the Schermerhorn’s world-renowned pipe organ in a symphonic concert. Enter the versatile Wayne Marshall, leading from the console as soloist in the Poulenc Organ Concerto and from the piano for Gershwin’s Second Rhapsody. On the podium, he conducts Harlem and the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, by American icons whose mixing of jazz and classical idioms captured the spirit of 1950s and 1960s New York City.

We end our season with Orff’s Carmina burana, in all its magnificent, carnal beauty. Giancarlo Guerrero programmed it — in its original form — to showcase the powerful forces of the Nashville Symphony and Chorus. On the first half of the program, our soloists in the Orff treat us to Alban Berg’s Seven Early Songs and the autobiographical Songs of the Wayfarer of Mahler, who compared his own life to “a traveling journeyman…wandering on in solitude.”
