Presented by New Jersey Symphony Orchestra
XIAN ZHANG conductor
DANIIL TRIFONOV piano
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Two extraordinary artists explore the never-ending connections that music makes across the ages. Don’t miss piano phenomenon Daniil Trifonov, “the most astounding young pianist of our age” (The Times of London), in Schumann’s poetic concerto.
STRAUSS Also sprach Zarathustra
Famous for its use in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Strauss’ tone poem—dramatic, gorgeous, thrilling—is the kind of music musicians live to play.
SCHUMANN Piano Concerto
Colorful, lively, embodying a love story for the ages. Schumann wrote this gorgeous concerto for his wife, Clara, who played the solo part in its premiere.
SCRIABIN Poem of Ecstasy (NJSO Premiere)
Scriabin applied his remarkable gift for orchestral color to this immersive ode to rapture, a showcase for the abundant gifts of Music Director Xian Zhang.
Join us for Bank of America Classical Overtures, held one hour prior to this concert. This interactive presentation is hosted by Maestro George Marriner Maull of New Jersey's Discovery Orchestra and is free to ticket holders.
