Hindemith, Lizst and Prokofiev
January 24 - January 26, 2013
Conductor Charles Dutoit returns for his third week of concerts during the 2012-13 season, this time for a program featuring virtuoso English pianist Stephen Hough in Liszt's scintillatingly virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 1. The program begins with Hindemith's?Symphonic Metamorphoses?on?Themes of Weber-which translates material from works by Carl Maria von Weber into a virtuoso showpiece for orchestra-and concludes with music from Prokofiev's sweeping and colorful ballet score?Romeo and Juliet.
