ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Jingling sleigh bells, reverent wedding bells, thunderous alarm bells and mournful iron bells—these are the sonic atmospheres traversed in Rachmaninoff’s spectacular choral symphony, which draws as its text the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Spanish sensation Javier Perianes dazzles in Saint-Saëns’ sensuous and exotic “Egyptian” concerto. To start, step inside the haunting, visionary world of America’s greatest musical pioneer and prophet, Charles Ives.

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.
