William BOLCOM Concerto Grosso for Saxophone Quartet
BRUCKNER Symphony No. 4 “Romantic”
Acclaimed by the New York Times as “one of the finest conductors of her generation,” JoAnn Falletta is a much-sought guest conductor and a vibrant presence on the podium. At the invitation of Joseph Giunta, she leads the Symphony in a soaring symphonic showcase. This energetic concert opens with Brahms’s lively Academic Festival Overture. Next, the virtuosic Oasis Quartet plays Bolcom’s Concerto Grosso, a masterpiece for four saxophones and orchestra. Finally, Bruckner’s monumental Fourth Symphony, his “cathedral of sound,” will take your breath away with its blazing power and majesty.
