Marin Alsop opens the season with Beethoven’s "Eroica" Symphony, a work that changed the course of music history. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwantner wrote his New Morning for the World for orchestra and narrator, capturing some of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most eloquent words. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson returns to play Rachmaninoff’s scintillating Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
