Drums and Dvorák

Gymnastic, staggeringly dexterous, and breathtaking—that's how people who've seen Colin Currie's percussive showcases tend to describe them. A prodigy who started his career before he could accurately pronounce "spaghetti," the Royal Academy of Music graduate has been the toast of the UK symphony circuit, picking up the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award, the Bortletti Buitoni Trust Award, and a Grammy Award between adventures with the world's top orchestras. Returning to the grand Music Hall to share his timpani with the symphony, the program features the lush overture to Weber's The Marksman and the heart-thumping xylophone of James MacMillan's Veni, Veni, Emmanuel with Colin Currie as soloist. The other star of the evening is Dvorák, whose powerful, pastoral Symphony No. 5 carries listeners along on an emotional journey in four movements. Steering the program is master conductor Christoph König, who has helmed prestigious outfits such as the Orchestre de Paris, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London, and Danish National Symphony, alongside his permanent position as Principal Conductor of the Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música.

Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1895, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra—under the direction of Louis Langrée—has matured into one of the nation's melodic heavyweights. Not only was the ensemble the first American orchestra to tour the world, backed by the US Department of State, it also hit the road stateside, playing Carnegie Hall 47 times since 1917. With such an enormous history, it's no surprise that some of classical music's biggest names are associated with the institution. It has housed famous conductors such as Leopold Stokowski and Max Rudolf, and has premiered the works of Debussy, Mahler, Ravel, and Bartók. It's not only responsible for introducing Aaron Copland's A Lincoln Portrait to audiences, it also commissioned his Fanfare for the Common Man into existence. Attracting only the finest players from Ohio and around the world to its stable of musicians, the orchestra continues its second century as an ambassador of symphonic culture.
