*Nashville Symphony Commission & World Premiere

Experience three centuries’ worth of amazing music when Giancarlo Guerrero and your Nashville Symphony perform timeless classics and unveil an exciting new world premiere. Sparkling with imagination and bursts of energy, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 is the work that launched one of the most brilliant careers in all of music. Stravinsky’s dynamic Symphony in Three Movements captures a pivotal moment in 20th century history, as the world emerged from World War II. And the Nashville Symphony teams once again with composer Michael Daugherty — whose past work earned GRAMMY® trophies for the orchestra — as he pays tribute to two American icons: writer Ernest Hemingway and painter Grant Wood.
