Under the baton of maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, the Grammy Award–winning Nashville Symphony sets air particles to vibrating with a program that features both classical masterworks and world-premiere performances. Music-making commences with Anton Webern's “Passacaglia,” op. 1, before his lush textures and angular melodies melt into the world-premiere performance of Richard Danielpour's Darkness in the Ancient Valley, which draws on the composer's Iranian heritage. Joining the orchestra for Danielpour's visceral tone romp is Grammy Award–winning soprano Hila Plitmann, who will lend her dulcet tones to the composer's musical text and glare at audience members who clap between movements. The program rounds out with master symphonist Gustav Mahler's Symphony no. 4, a highly accessible piece that signifies lost childhood innocence through high flutes, sleigh bells, and the mournful squeak of broken Matchbox cars.
