HINDEMITH Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Carl Maria von Weber
Disney’s animated classic, “Fantasia,” prominently features Leopold Stokowski’s lush orchestration of Bach’s famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, and likewise, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis converts earlier music (in this case, by Carl Maria von Weber) into an orchestral tour-de-force. The Symphony also welcomes back one of the world’s preeminent pianists, Yefim Bronfman, to perform Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, an iridescent and dazzling work with a fiery finish.
