Thierry and the Utah Symphony give the final concerts of their Masterworks Season this month with four varied concerts. On 17 and 18 May, Thierry and the orchestra are joined by Canadian virtuoso James Ehnes, who performs Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1. Also on the programme are two American classics by Aaron Copland: Appalachian Spring and Billy the Kid.
The following week, Thierry and the orchestra close the season with two performances of a fittingly epic work on 24 and 25 May. They return to Mahler’s mighty First Symphony, the “Titan”, which Thierry selected to launch the recent series of acclaimed Utah Symphony commercial recordings in 2014. The program opens with Haydn’s Symphony No. 9 and a visually and satirical work by Alfred Schnittke, Moz-Art à la Haydn.
