Nathalie Stutzmann Conducts Prokofiev and Shostakovich at CSU
Saturday at 7:30PM
Join us for this special performance at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts at Columbus State University.
Both Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich lived under the thumb of the Soviet tyrant Joseph Stalin. Both suffered persecution at the hands of the apparatchiks, and both wrote brilliant music despite them. Music Director Nathalie Stutzmann guides the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra into the evocative soundscapes of Prokofiev and Shostakovich. With a kaleidoscope of orchestral color, Maestro Stutzmann and the ASO bring out the power, nuance and audacity of these legends. The Sinfonia concertante features "one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists" (Gramophone magazine), Johannes Moser.
