    Inon BarnatanShostakovich Symphony No. 10

    Friday, October 14, 8 pm
    Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

    Vasily Petrenko, conductor
    Inon Barnatan, piano

    Beethoven: Overture to Coriolan Listen Now
    Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 Listen Now
    Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10 Listen Now

    Two revolutionary composers, both as musicians and as humanists, are explored by Vasily Petrenko, who made a strong impression on his last BSO visit. Written after the death of Stalin, Shostakovich’s pulsing and militaristic 10th Symphony is often called an “optimistic tragedy.” Beethoven complements the work with his tumultuous, war-like Coriolan Overture and the Third Piano Concerto, performed by emerging Israeli-born New Yorker Inon Barnatan, hailed as “superb” by The New York Times, and here making his BSO debut.

    Marin AlsopMahler Symphony No. 6

    Friday, November 11, 8 pm
    Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

    Marin Alsop, conductor

    Mahler: Symphony No. 6 Listen Now

    An acknowledged Mahler authority, Maestra Alsop is passionate about this composer — a man who grappled mightily with his own nature and that of all mankind, illuminating the human condition with every note he wrote. The Sixth Symphony is a massive undertaking— for the composer, for the conductor, for the orchestra and for the audience. Big, dramatic and life-affirming, it packs into one masterpiece Mahler’s lifelong efforts to succeed against the inevitable blows of fate. Not heard at the BSO since 1992, this is a rare opportunity to experience this extraordinary work.

    Helene Grimaud

    Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

    Friday, March 3, 8 pm
    Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

    Marin Alsop, conductor
    Hélène Grimaud, piano

    Anna Clyne: Within Her Arms (BSO Premiere)
    Schumann: Symphony No. 3, "Rhenish" Listen Now
    Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2 Listen Now

    Reflective and mournful, yet optimistic, this program reveals artists at important turning points. Anna Clyne's Within Her Arms is a moving elegy written shortly after the passing of her mother. Schumann's richly Romantic symphony was written on the edge of his eventual madness and collapse. Following the lukewarm reception for his first concerto, Brahms waited 22 years before penning the second. Here, as performed by virtuoso Hélène Grimaud, it was clearly worth the wait: an expansive meditation on Brahms' life and the promise of the future.
