Finishing Touches - Tchaikovsky’s “Little Russian” & Prokofiev with Conrad Tao







ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE

Join the Utah Symphony for a night of Russian highlights when pianist Conrad Tao returns to tackle Prokofiev’s incredibly athletic Piano Concerto No. 2 on a program that also features the Ukrainian-influenced 2nd Symphony of Tchaikovsky. No less dramatic, Franck’s darkly atmospheric Le chasseur maudit begins the concert with the tale of a count who defies the Sabbath to go hunting.

Experience a behind-the-scenes look at our orchestra during four Masterworks Series rehearsals. Includes light refreshments in the lobby prior to the rehearsal. Please note that these events are working rehearsals and programming is chosen from that weekend's selections at the discretion of the conductor.
