Bright Sheng Black Swan
J.S. BACH/STOKOWSKI Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
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 the youthful virtuoso George Li to perform Liszt’s First Piano Concerto, an impressive work with intricate passages and gorgeous melodies.

This program and guest artist have changed as of June 5.
