Edo de Waart, conductor

Our Leonard Bernstein Centennial celebration concludes with “Lenny’s” quintessential curtain-raiser, the overture to Candide. Maestro de Waart welcomes the Naughton sisters, the most acclaimed piano duo on today’s classical circuit, for Francis Poulenc’s famous Concerto for Two Pianos, a charming and agreeable work with a strong suggestion of Mozart at its sparkling heart. Finally, the season closes with Johannes Brahms’ Second Symphony, a work of supreme control that grows from a focused, serious beginning to a wonderfully bright and brassy finale.
