MISSY MAZZOLI Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)

SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No. 2

BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”

This is Beethoven at peace, amid his cherished nature. Every measure of the poetic “Pastoral” symphony animates his impressions of country life. Also, Natasha Paremski performs Shostakovich’s tender Second Piano Concerto. “She came, played and conquered,” declared Chicago Classical Review, “Paremski attacked the fusillade of octaves with virtuosic élan.” The concert fittingly begins with a sunrise—Missy Mazzoli’s widely acclaimed Sinfonia.
