In its penultimate concert of the season, the Boston Civic Symphony sonically embraces ears with a pair of piano soloists, a local radio host, and an acclaimed soprano—all of whom lend their acoustical acumen to an afternoon bursting with masterworks. In Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra, husband-and-wife piano duo Randy Hodgkinson and Leslie Amper join maestro Max Hobart, who conducts the orchestra with a wonder baton he carved from a tree that was struck by lightning. The pair of pianists then lends their ivory-poking prowess to Saint-Saens's Carnival of the Animals, to which WGHB radio host Cathy Fuller narrates Ogden Nash's famous verses before the ornamental organ casework that frames the stunning stage. Just before the piece's finale, a rich cello ripples over The Swan.

In the afternoon's final piece, Maria Ferrante's voice cascades as a piercing soprano in Mahler's Symphony no. 4. Designated a National Historic Landmark, Jordan Hall boasts acclaimed acoustics that carom through a horseshoe-shaped layout. Additionally, a coffered ceiling with gilt moldings and semi-opaque skylights ramp up the elegance and allow audience members to stare back at the cloud that has followed them all day.
