The Symphony welcomes the return of Conductor Laureate Bruno Ferrandis for this Russian-themed program. Stravinsky’s bright and festive fairytale-like Scherzo Fantastique buzzes with exotic tone colors and perpetual motion. Olga Kern charms with Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Written as a playful birthday present for his 19-year-old son, it brims with ebullience, tenderness and humor. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 carries us through an emotion-packed soundscape of luscious Slavic folksongs, melancholy melodies, lilting waltzes and tempestuous drama before blazing to victory.
