Prokofiev Concerto No. 2 in G minor for Violin and Orchestra, Opus 63
Berio Sinfonia, for Eight Voices and Orchestra
See the MSO’s Associate Concertmaster, Ilana Setapen, in a solo role! Ilana illuminates Prokofiev’s ferociously lyrical Violin Concerto No. 2. Then, Edo de Waart presents Luciano Berio’s masterpiece, Sinfonia. Commissioned by the New York Philharmonic for its 125th anniversary, the work blends melodies of Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky and Mahler into a mesmerizing mélange, punctuated by the singular voices of the Swingle Singers, who premiered the work in 1968. Sinfonia speaks for its time—and for all time.
