Messiaen - Les Offrandes oubliées
Sibelius - Violin Concerto
Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique

Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique sounds every bit as mind-blowing today as it did two centuries ago. Fueled by romantic obsession, this is a musical fever dream that travels from the depths of despair to the heights of ecstasy — and it’s the perfect vehicle for the amazing musicians of your Nashville Symphony. Sibelius’ Violin Concerto is stunning showcase for soloist Elina Vähälä, a work full of drama and jaw-dropping musicianship that will leave you in awe of this rising young Finnish talent. Olivier Messiaen’s deeply moving and spiritual Les Offrandes oubliées opens the concert.

Presented by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra League, our free Classical Conversations take place one hour before all Classical Series concerts in the Balcony Lobby. Led by our conductors, guest artists and musicians, these informative talks are a great way to learn the story behind the music you’ll hear onstage. 

Following the concert, you’re invited to participate in an informal question-and-answer session with the conductor. The discussion will take place 10 minutes after the close of the concert, at the back of the orchestra level.
