ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Praised for his passion and musical intelligence, conductor Juraj Valčuha returns to Jones Hall with Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra. Featured in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, this tone poem is famous for its unforgettable opening sunrise. Acclaimed Chopin interpreter Evgeni Bozhanov performs Chopin’s poetic Piano Concerto No. 2, which features some of the composer’s most tender melodies.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
