Barber and Copland: American Souvenirs (October 17): Copland’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Appalachian Spring anchors an evening that includes Barber’s charming ballet suite Souvenirs and fellow Pulitzer-winner Aaron Jay Kernis’s Musica Celestis.
Rossini, Fauré & Schubert: European Romance (November 7): Journey from Rossini’s Italy (Overture to The Barber of Seville) to Schubert’s Vienna (Symphony No. 5), with stops in Romania, Spain, and presumably at least one gas station in between.
Brahms and Mozart (January 9): The mood is generous and cheerful in this program, starting with Mozart’s zippy Symphony No. 32 and concluding with Brahms’ Serenade No. 1, sounding as youthful as the composer was when he wrote it.
Mozart and Mahler Celebrate Family and Earth (January 30): Grammy-winning tenor Anthony Dean Griffey and Tamara Mumford, a star of the Metropolitan Opera, make their TSO debut in a program of work from two legendary composers in their creative primes: Mahler, with Das Lied von der Erde, and Mozart, with Symphony No. 35.
Mendelssohn & Schumann (March 6): Conductor George Hanson returns to one of the first pieces he conducted for the TSO—Schumann’s Symphony No. 2—as Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto initiates award-winning pianist Sean Chen into the ranks of the orchestra’s guest stars.
