PROGRAM
Michael Gandolfi – Selections from The Garden of Cosmic Speculation
Sibelius – Symphony No. 5

Rachmaninoff – Piano Concerto No. 3

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Robert Spano
, conductor | Simon Trpčeski, piano

As portrayed in the hit film Shine, Rach Three is a piece so virtuosic, so technically demanding, that it has earned a reputation as one of the most challenging pieces ever written. Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski is entirely up to the challenge. In his first-ever Nashville appearance, this celebrated artist will convey all of the musical and emotional energy in Rachmaninoff’s astounding score — originally written for the composer/pianist’s first American tour 90 years ago.

Bookending this masterwork are two resplendent musical evocations of manmade and natural beauty: Michael Gandolfi’s The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is inspired by landscape architect Charles Jencks’ remarkable sculpture garden in Scotland, while Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony evokes the composer’s own rapturous experience witnessing swans in flight, with peals of brass that convey the feeling of awestruck wonder.

For this very special program, the Curb Youth Symphony and Nashville Symphony perform Shostakovich's landmark Symphony No. 5, a work written during a critical moment in Soviet history – and in the composer's own life. To open the concert, pianist Luke Turner, a ninth-grade home school student and winner of the 2019 Curb Concerto Competition, will step forward as soloist with the Nashville Symphony on the first movement of Rachmaninoff's lovely and lyrical Piano Concerto No. 2.

The Honestly Tour Spring 2019

Four-time GRAMMY®-nominated saxophonist Boney James returns for another night of smooth and sultry jazz, showcasing music from his latest album, Honestly, along with selections from his 25-year career. Influenced by funk, classic soul and contemporary jazz, James is a magnetic performer with a sound that crosses genres and generations.

James says of his new record: "The feeling I get with this music is a sense of sincerity and intimacy. The word ‘honestly’ really reflects how I aspire to live my life and create my music. These are interesting times we are living in, and the one thing I can do with the skills that I have is to make music that evokes a feeling and takes people somewhere…to do what I can to try and make the world a more pleasant place.”

PROGRAM
Messiaen – Turangalîla-symphonie

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano | Cynthia Millar, ondes Martenot

Enter a world of sound unlike any other in Messiaen's singular Turangalîla-symphonie. This "song of love" features the ondes Martenot, a vintage electronic instrument that adds shimmering, otherworldly textures to an expansive piece of music that continues to inspire and astound listeners 70 years after its premiere. Bird songs, sacred Hindu music, Indonesian gamelan, percussive piano, soaring orchestral melodies — these and more come together to form what Messiaen called "a hymn to joy, time, movement, rhythm, life and death.

This concert will open with a lecture and demonstration led by Giancarlo Guerrero and soloists Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Cynthia Millar, with a special focus on the ondes Martenot. Click here to learn more about this strange and wonderful instrument.

Please note: There will be no pre-concert lecture in the Balcony Lobby for this performance.
