Melodic High - Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra - MAR 9-10
7 Mar 2012
Two CSO principal players take center stage for music as big as the movies! Concertmater Timothy Lees and principal cellist Ilya Finkelshteyn perform Hungarian-themed music by Miklós Rózsa, best known for film scores such as Ben-Hur. Also on the program is a rarely unearthed gem by Bach, arranged by former CSO Music Director Leopold Stokowski, and Brahms' glowing Third Symphony—filled with sighs of resignation and melodic highs and lows—music which nearlycaused a duel to break out at its premiere.
