Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony

May 15

7:30 PM

Brahms, Schumann, Saint-Saëns

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Emmanuel Krivine leads the CSO in the shimmering and majestic Organ Symphony. After completing his third and final symphony, Saint-Saëns declared: "I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again." Also on the program is Brahms’ turbulent Tragic Overture and Schumann's heart-wrenching Violin Concerto with Isabelle Faust, an artist of "disarming warmth and sweetness who can unveil hidden strains of lyricism" (The New York Times).

Please join us in Grainger Ballroom immediately following the concert for a Q&A with the evening’s guest artists or CSO musicians. Open to all ticketholders.

Approximate concert duration: 110 minutes including intermission
