Under the baton of conductor Osmo Vänskä, Music Director of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, the Curtis Symphony Orchestra presents a newly commissioned work by James Ra. Praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “a composer to watch,” Ra’s electrifying compositions have been described as “coursing with adrenaline-pumping energy.”

The program continues with Schumann’s beloved Piano Concerto in A minor, one of the most widely performed and recorded piano concertos in the Romantic repertoire. The evening concludes with Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, “Titan,” considered one of the composer’s most accessible works, with its soaring melodies, thunderous crescendos, and triumphant conclusion.
