The Program

Conductor Lawrence Foster joins forces with acclaimed Russian-born pianist Kirill Gerstein, who lends his swift fingers to a performance of Bernstein’s dynamic second symphony. Of one of Gerstein’s recent recordings, the New York Times wrote that he delivers “technical assurance, characteristic subtlety, and a gift for instilling unease.”

  • Dvořák—Symphony No. 9 in E minor: One of the most enduring examples of a Romantic symphony, this piece is often called the New World Symphony because Dvořák took inspiration from his time as the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. While there, he became familiar with everything from Native-American rhythms to African-American spirituals and traditional Scottish music. He then weaved this cultural blend into a single composition, creating a sonic representation of the country itself.
  • Bernstein—Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety: Channeling W.H. Auden’s Pulitzer-winning poem of the same name, Berstein shrugged off the traditional form of the symphony when composing this piece. Its six subsections, which mirror Auden’s text, are performed without pause by the orchestra and solo piano.

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Even though it opened in 2006, Schermerhorn Symphony Center looks like it's been a part of the landscape for centuries. That's because the center, which is named for Nashville Symphony's late maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, took its design cues from famed European concert halls. Its classic appearance is enhanced by 30 soundproof windows, which allow natural sunlight or unnatural spaceship lights to stream in. A custom-built organ rings out through the hall, and a convertible seating design allows the hall to morph into a ballroom floor for cabaret shows or weddings.
