BERNSTEIN Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety
BRAHMS Symphony No. 3

Conductor Dima Slobodeniouk leads the BSO in Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety, a piece inspired by W.H. Auden’s Pulitzer prize-winning poem of the same name. The music's shape is meant to closely mirror the poem, which tells the story of four young strangers who meet in a bar during WWII. Young virtuoso Conrad Tao joins as the piano soloist for Bernstein.

Also on the program, Brahms’ dramatic, sweeping Symphony No. 3 explores the ideas of freedom, happiness, and loneliness.
