When: Sept. 19-20 2015
Russian composers’ works never go quietly into the night — they’re brash and bold pieces of art, as dramatic as they come. This makes a Spokane Symphony season opening weekend full of Russian music the perfect way to make a statement. Take Modest Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, for example. This is that spooky piece folks grew up hearing in Disney’s Fantasia, and it’s sure to spark the audience’s attention immediately. Also expect a lot from the harsh and spectacular Bartók Piano Concerto No. 1, featuring acclaimed Filipina pianist Cecile Licad. The lineup ends with the biggest Russian daddy of them all, Tchaikovsky, as the symphony takes on his Symphony No. 2, aka "Little Russian."
