Bozeman favorite Spencer Myer makes his much-anticipated return to perform Serge Prokofiev’s sparkling and exuberant 3rd piano concerto. Then, the orchestra will tackle the suite of moods that is Carl Nielsen’s best-known work. A tribute to Brahms and Dvořák, The Four Temperaments is rich with sweeping melodies, lush harmonies, and robust orchestral effects. A perfect way to begin an exciting season of thrilling live-symphonic experiences!

The golden age of Hollywood produced not only epic movies, but also epic movie scores, and gave classically trained European composers a niche in the “New World.” Having won multiple Academy Awards, for such films as Ben-Hur, Miklós Rózsa was also a highly respected and sought-after composer of music for the concert hall. His Sinfonia Concertante, was written for two of history’s most famous soloists: Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorsky. For this performance we are pleased to welcome Dallas Symphony members Jolyon Pegis and Maria Schleuning. Rounding out the program is the music of Antonín Dvořák.
12/10, 7:30 p.m. & 12/11, 2:30 p.m.
