Thomas Søndergård and Leila Josefowicz
Season Opening Celebration:

Søndergård, Josefowicz and Ravel

Donor Appreciation Week

Thu Sep 26 — Sat Sep 28, 2024

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

Experience evocative and vivid writing from two masters of orchestration, where the lines between old and new are blurred. Maurice Ravel borrows from Franz Schubert and Thomas Adès turns to Johann Strauss, Jr., both in Viennese waltz style. Our soloist is Leila Josefowicz, who approaches new music with a sense of daring that is contagious.
