Arvo Pärt Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten
Arvo Pärt poured his emotions about the passing of composer Benjamin Britten into this evocative 1977 composition for strings and one lone chime.
Still Symphony No. 1, “Afro-American”
With its elements of jazz and infusion of blues, William Grant Still’s most popular symphony remains relevant today. In 1930, it became the first symphony composed by an African American to be performed by a professional orchestra in the United States.
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
Filled with anguish and melancholy, Tchaikovsky’s symphony explores fate and how it shapes our lives. Former Music Director Neeme Järvi takes our audiences on a journey of power and reflection fueled by strings and brass.
