SHOSTAKOVICH  Symphony No. 9    

2018 is a year in which the world celebrates the towering musical legacy of Leonard Bernstein (1918–1990). Hear Bernstein’s “Age of Anxiety,” a brilliant fusion of symphony and piano concerto which spotlights Rochester favorite Misha Dichter. Barber’s intensely lyrical Essay and Shostakovich’s carnivalesque symphony—both notably interpreted by Bernstein as a conductor—round out this not-to-be-missed “salute to Lenny.”

Join conductors and special guests for a free, fun, and lively discussion about the music before each Philharmonics Series concert. Talks start one hour before the concert and end with ample time for you to refresh before the concert begins. Talks are held on the orchestra level of the Eastman Theatre.


The 2017–18 Season is presented by 


Philharmonics Series sponsor:


Misha Dichter's performance is made possible by the Alfred Davis and Brunhilde Knapp Artists Performance Fund.
