PROGRAM

Bortniansky: Sinfonia concertante in B-flat Major

Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor, Op. 22

Dvo?rák: Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, Op. 70

Bortniansky was a favorite of Russia’s Catherine the Great; his Sinfonia Concertante is a sprightly contrast to the sacred a capella choral music for which he is better known.

Saint-Saëns, a brilliant pianist, composed his second piano concerto in less than three weeks, but its lush, beguiling melodies have amply stood the test of time.

Before living briefly in New York City, and in hopes of matching Brahms’s newest creation, Czech composer Antonin Dvo?rák wrote a turbulent, stirring symphony that may well have you on the edge of your seat.
