CLASSIC 1: VICTORIOUS SHOSTAKOVICH!

George Hanson, conductor • Jennifer Frautschi, violin Shostakovich: Festive Overture Glazunov: Violin Concerto Shostakovich: Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad” Friday, October 4 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m. Grammy® nominee and Avery Fisher career grant recipient Jennifer Frautschi makes her TSO debut opening the season with the technically brilliant and joyful Glazunov Violin Concerto, his most popular work. It is between two of Shostakovich’s major works, the Festive Overture, a lively melodic composition in the classical style and his Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad,” one of his most beloved works written at a time when the country was withstanding the Nazi onslaught.

CLASSIC 2: RACH 2 RACHMANINOFF

Guillermo Figueroa, guest conductor and violin Cordero: Insula Tropical Bartók: Suite from The Miraculous Mandarin Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2 Friday, October 25 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 p.m. Guillermo Figueroa returns to the TSO for the first time since 2008 to play and conduct a piece that was written for him, Cordero’s Insula Tropical, a contemporary composition reflecting the cultural aspects of the flora and fauna of Puerto Rico. Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2, one of h is most popular, is loved for its glorious harmonies and rich melodies including the familiar tune used in the hit pop song, “Never Gonna Fall in Love Again.” Bartok’s The Miraculous Mandarin, in its time a very controversial work, sizzles with mystical qualities and elaborate melodies.

CLASSIC 3: DANCING WITH GLASS AND BEETHOVEN

Andrew Grams, guest conductor • Tim Fain, violin • Wendy Sutter, cello Adams: The Chairman Dances Glass: Double Concerto for Violin and Cello Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 Friday, November 15 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, November 17 at 2:00 p.m. All three works show how repeated rhythms and speeds shape our perception of the passing of time; all three are also “easy on the ears” tonally which makes concentrating on the rhythmic patterns more enjoyable. Rising star Tim Fain, who accompanied actress Natalie Portman in Black Swan, teams with Wendy Sutter, “one of the great leading cellists of the classical stage,” (Wall Street Journal) to perform Glass’ Double Concerto with its intimate, elegant duets between each movement. The Chairman Dances is from Adams’ popular opera, Nixon in China, and Beethoven’s Seventh features one of the most famous allegrettos in the entire symphonic repertoire.

CLASSIC 4: BACH, BEES & BEETHOVEN

Tania Miller, guest conductor • Gabriela Martinez, piano Pärt: If Bach Had Been a Bee-Keeper... Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor” Sibelius: Symphony No. 1 Friday, December 6 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, December 8 at 2:00 p.m.

Gabriela Martinez, piano

“Compelling, elegant, and incisive,”(The New York Times) Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Martinez makes her TSO debut performing Beethoven’s most popular Piano Concerto, the Fifth, demonstrating the technical abilities of the pianist and the prowess of Beethoven. Brilliant Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s Wenn Bach Bienen Gezüchtet Hätte rings with beauty, and Sibelius’ shimmering First Symphony, with its glowing woodwind and string solos featured from the very first beat, is an appropriately spectacular finale.

CLASSIC 5: MOECKEL PLAYS THE RED VIOLIN George Hanson, conductor • Steven Moeckel, violin

Corigliano: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra The Red Violin Mahler: Symphony No. 5 Friday, January 17 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, January 19 at 2:00 p.m. Film music takes center stage as former Concertmaster Steven Moeckel returns to the TSO to perform the popular and powerful concerto John Corigliano composed and Joshua Bell performed in The Red Violin. Mahler’s brilliant Fifth Symphony, with its plaintive, engrossing and moving Adagietto, was popularized by the classic film, Death in Venice.

CLASSIC 6: THE DAMNATION OF FAUST

George Hanson, conductor • Jennifer Johnson Cano, mezzo-soprano William Burden, tenor • Jordan Bisch, baritone Berlioz: The Damnation of Faust Friday, February 14 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, February 16 at 2:00 p.m. Hector Berlioz composed The Damnation of Faust after being inspired by Goethe’s Faust and it is his rendering of the opus into musical form. The composition is divided into five parts – from the time Méphistophélès seduces Faust with the purity of Marguerite, her seduction by Faust, her pending execution and Faust’s pact with the devil to save her. A wonderful performance piece and a once in a lifetime event in Tucson with the TSO. In partnership with the Tucson Desert Song Festival.

CLASSIC 7: SAINT-SAENS CELLO CONCERTO Edwin Outwater, guest conductor • Amit Peled, cello

Bates: Alternative Energy Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No. 1 Debussy: La Mer Friday, March 14 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, March 16 at 2:00 p.m. A work by Chicago Symphony Composer-in-residence, Mason Bates, Alternative Energy incorporates contemporary electronic sounds into the orchestra’s performance. A montage of time travel from 1896 through 2222, the four movements alternate from whimsical to moving and eerie. Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1 is a work designed to show every capability of the cello and one which grabs the listener’s attention from the first few bars with its mellifluous melodies. Hearing the ocean from a thousand miles away in La Mer, Debussy’s imaginative, dramatic symphonic tone poem, is a fitting end to this exhilarating program.

CLASSIC 8: THE RING WITHOUT WORDS George Hanson, conductor • Jeremy Denk, piano

Wagner: Prelude to Act III, from Lohengrin Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 25 Wagner: Ring without Words Friday, April 4 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, April 6 at 2:00 p.m. A frequent collaborator with Joshua Bell, The New York Times claims Denk is “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination.” He makes his TSO debut performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25, one of the most complex that Mozart wrote for the piano and considered one of his greatest works. The program opens with Prelude to Act III, from Lohengrin, perhaps Wagner’s most recognizable prelude, and concludes with his massive Ring Cycle distilled into the high points of the entire composition.

MASTERWORKS 1: A CLASSIC CONVERSATION George Hanson, conductor • Elena Urioste, violin

Winger: Conversations with Nijinsky Barber: Violin Concerto Haydn: Symphony No. 104, “London” Saturday, October 19 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, October 20 at 2:00 p.m. Recipient of the inaugural Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Elena Urioste has been on the cover of Symphony Magazine and her performances with the Chicago Symphony have been acclaimed for their “hypnotic delicacy,” “expressive poise,” and “lyrical sensitivity.” Her performance of the haunting Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber will pull the listener into its enchanted world immediately. Haydn’s great London Symphony, written at a time of immense accomplishment in his life, reflects his own joy. The program opens with the contemporary work, Conversations with Nijinsky, a ballet suite by dancer-turned-rock star and composer, Kip Winger.

MASTERWORKS 2: LEGENDS AND DANCES Jay Friedman, guest conductor

Sibelius: Lemminkäinen Suite Strauss: Traumerei am Kamin from Intermezzo Dvorák: Slavonic Dances Saturday, November 9 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, November 10 at 4:00 p.m. Sibelius’s symphonic poems, the Lemminkäinen Suite, shimmer with the musical glow only he could create. Traumerei am Kamin (Reverie by the Fireside), a brief romantic piece by Strauss, has rich tones of dreamy contemplation. The Slavonic Dances, based on Hungarian rhythms with his own original melodies, made Dvorák famous internationally and have remained some of his most popular works.

MASTERWORKS 3: SCHUBERT THE GREAT! George Hanson, conductor

Corigliano: Voyage Schumann: Konzertstück for 4 Horns & Orchestra Schubert: Symphony No. 9 “The Great“ Saturday, January 11 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, January 12 at 2:00 p.m. Franz Schubert himself considered it the finest and most beautifully orchestrated work of all of his compositions and music lovers agree! Schubert’s 9th, “The Great,” has stood shoulder to shoulder with Beethoven’s finest compositions for over 170 years. Opening with Corigliano’s musical homage to Baudelaire’s provocative poem about a poet’s life, Voyage is a sensual journey of lush instrumentation. The Konzertstück was written in one of Schumann’s most prolific periods and features intricacies for the horns with bright, witty accompaniment by the orchestra.

VIBRANT!

MASTERWORKS 4: BERLIOZ & RAVEL: POETRY IN MUSIC George Hanson, conductor • Jennifer Johnson Cano, mezzo-soprano Berlioz: Queen Mab Scherzo from Roméo et Juliette Berlioz: Les nuits d’été (Summer Nights) Ravel: Trois poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin Saturday, February 8 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, February 9 at 2:00 p.m.

The program is one of fantasy and dreams, some frothy with exuberance and others dark and mysterious offering reflection. It opens with the Scherzo from Roméo et Juliette, a sprightly interlude, playfully dancing from horns to piccolos to orchestra and back again. Summer Nights is a musical nod by Berlioz to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A tour-de-force for the soprano, Ravel’s three poems create shadowy, burnished, yearning beauty. Closing the program is Le Tombeau de Couperin, a composition rich with hope. In partnership with the Tucson Desert Song Festival.

MASTERWORKS 5: BEETHOVEN’S FOURTH

James Feddeck, guest conductor Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture Stravinsky: Pulcinella Suite Beethoven: Symphony No. 4 Saturday, March 8 at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday, March 9 at 2:00 p.m. The program opens with the Hebrides Overture, a work conceived by Mendelssohn’s Scottish trip and his visit to Fingal’s Cave, which inspired his musical representation of the eerie sounds produced by the echoes of waves. The suite from Stravinsky’s ballet based on the Commedia dell’arte character is the musical story of a suitor in his farcical attempts to woo a young lady. One of Beethoven’s most complex works, the Fourth Symphony is rich in beauty, fiery in tempo and exuberant in spirit. An exciting finish to the evening!
