Symphony No. 2: Age of Anxiety

8:00 pm Thursday, March 29, 2018
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Symphony Center Chicago, Illinois, United States

Kent Nagano, conductor; Gilles Vonsattel, piano

A centennial celebration of musical icon Leonard Bernstein continues with Kent Nagano conducting one of his most profound compositions, The Age of Anxiety Symphony. A jazzy, concerto-like work inspired by a poem written by W.H. Auden, it tells the story of four strangers in a New York bar who connect through a shared search for the meaning of life. The evening closes with Schumann’s First Symphony, a joyous celebration of spring.
