Prokofiev’s Cinderella & Beethoven

Join us for a performance featuring one of Prokofiev’s most beloved ballet scores paired with a beautiful Beethoven piano concerto and bold symphony by Schoenberg.
British pianist Stephen Hough performs Beethoven’s fourth piano concerto, a radical work for its time that is filled with serene melodies from both the pianist and orchestra.
Prokofiev’s irresistible melodic genius takes center stage in a suite of scenes from his glorious version of the classic fairy tale Cinderella, which the world needed more than he could have known when it premiered in 1945.
Maestro Fischer and the orchestra explore the intellectual intricacies and virtuosic fireworks of Schoenberg’s groundbreaking 1st Chamber Symphony.
