ABOUT THIS CONCERT

For Easter and Passover weekend, the Houston Symphony offers a musical meditation on faith in the modern world. Continuing our celebration of Bernstein’s centennial, his Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety, follows four young people as they grapple with a war-torn world. Featuring world-renowned pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet in a virtuoso solo part, the work ends by discovering “a core of faith.” The program concludes with choral settings of psalms by Stravinsky.

This program features guest concertmaster Yosuke Kawasaki.
