In collaboration with musicians Lisa Hannigan and Aaron Dessner, and led by guest conductor Matthias Pintscher, the CSO performs a pair of exciting works that reflect the current innovations happening within contemporary orchestral music.
- Andrew Norman—Play: Winner of the University of Louisville Grawmeyer Award for Music Composition, this 2013 orchestral piece earned wide acclaim for its playful blend of texture, form, and dynamics. The result, in the composer’s own words, “weds traditional symphonic logic to the non-linear narrative techniques and exuberant tone of a video game.”
- Matthias Pintscher—idyll for orchestra: The young contemporary German composer (and conductor of the Ensemble Intercontemporain) wrote this complex, contemplative orchestral piece in part as a longing tribute to a late friend and mentor.
- Selections by Lisa Hannigan and Aaron Dessner

About 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.
