The Masterworks series, formerly called the Classics, will provide a dynamic range of repertoire and focus on two major themes. First, we will celebrate milestones from the past, including Beethoven's 250th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Second, we will unravel the identities of key American composers through their music. We believe this musical lens will provide insight, value and inspiration to each of us.

The Fox Theater


Masterworks 3: Soviet Transcendence


Morihiko Nakahara, Conductor

Joshua Roman, Cello

Prokofiev and Shostakovich, two of the most important symphonists of the 20th century, both worked under Stalin's highly oppressive regime. Prokofiev's Third Symphony features material from his opera, "The Fiery Angel," a love story set against the backdrop of demon possession. The result is both touching and dramatic, filled with foreboding and struggle. Shostakovich, who walked a fine line between state accolades and denunciation, wrote his First Cello Concerto for friend Mstislav Rostropovich. Weaving his musical monogram, DSCH, throughout the work, he skillfully combines powerful musical ideas with virtuoso pyrotechnics.
