Program

Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 8
Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 4

Zuill Bailey, a longtime friend of the Nashville Symphony, flawlessly navigates the virtuosic pyrotechnics of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 — specifically chosen for this concert by Giancarlo Guerrero. Two of Beethoven’s even-numbered symphonies surround the concerto, and though they are less-often performed in concert, they remain two of his most poignant and profound works.

Program

Florence Price, arr. Still: Dances in the Canebrakes
George Gershwin: Piano Concerto in F
William Dawson: Negro Folk Symphony
George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue

Gershwin’s orchestral music defined the American sound, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins us for our centennial celebration of Rhapsody in Blue plus his Piano Concerto in F. Gershwin is complemented by Florence Price and William Dawson, whose compositions stemmed from the Black American Experience. At its 1934 Carnegie Hall premiere, Dawson’s Negro Folk Symphony, based on spirituals and emphatically symphonic, brought audiences to their feet. And Price’s Dances in the Canebrakes is drawn from Black folk songs and dances of the 1920s and ‘30s.

Gil Shaham’s virtuosity, warmth, and audience connection make him a favorite guest in Nashville, and to hear him perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is a rare opportunity.

Program

Gustav Mahler, arr. Cooke: Symphony No. 10

Though the venerable composer Gustav Mahler completed only sketches of his Symphony No. 10 before his death in 1911, composers and musicologists spent much of the 20th century reconstructing it and filling in the gaps. Giancarlo Guerrero enlightens us with a fascinating exploration of this process before conducting Mahler’s final opus, considered by many to have been his greatest symphonic work.

Program

Alban Berg: Seven Early Songs
Gustav Mahler: Songs of the Wayfarer
Carl Orff: Carmina burana

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.”
