Lecture by Glass and Cincinnati Symphony Concert to follow
(concert ticket sold separately, available from http://cincinnatisymphony.org/Content.php?id=135).

On the CSO program: Fanfare for the Common Man, which Copland wrote for the CSO, provides a forceful opening to a propulsive program whose centerpiece is the mesmerizing Double Timpani Concerto by Philip Glass, “America's most famous living composer” (The New Yorker). Scored for 14 timpani played by two CSO timpanists, this satisfyingly intense tidal wave of sound sets the stage for the unbridled excitement of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.
