A Time for Reflection: A concert commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I
As part of a series of events honoring the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice, this concert features works that encourage reflection and inspire hope. Included on the program is the world premiere of Threnos by Bruno Mantovani, Prokofiev’s haunting Third Piano Concerto—performed by Russian superstar Daniil Trifonov—and Copland’s Third Symphony, with its poignant use of the Fanfare for the Common Man theme.
A free lecture, open to all ticketholders, by the foremost scholar on the Star Spangled Banner Mark Clague and Phillip Huscher, will precede the concert.
