This heavily German program brings together Schumann’s restless and innovative Fourth Symphony; Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen, a deeply personal work of inner transformation; and an orchestral arrangement of Mendelssohn’s tale of mistaken identity. Distinguished pianist Awadagin Pratt is the first to perform a new piano concerto by rising star composer Jessie Montgomery; this premiere music has been co-commissioned by the Art of Piano Foundation, the MSO, and a coalition* of North American orchestras.
The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
*The MSO thanks its co-commissioning partners: Art of Piano Foundation; Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra (which will premiere the work); St. Louis Symphony Orchestra; Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra; Iris Orchestra; Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; Colorado Symphony; Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra; and Kansas City Symphony.
