MAHLER “Adagio” from Symphony No. 10
JONATHAN LESHNOFF Piano Concerto (Kansas City Symphony commission, world premiere, underwritten by the Miller Nichols Charitable Foundation)
R. STRAUSS  Also sprach Zarathustra

With its majestic timpani and brass fanfare, everyone knows the unforgettable “Sunrise” opening of Also sprach Zarathustra from countless ads, pop culture references and the film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” No recording will ever compare to hearing it live in Helzberg Hall with your Symphony. While Mahler was unable to complete his 10th Symphony, “Adagio” from the first movement expresses his profound love for life. Between these two masterpieces, the dazzling Joyce Yang unveils the world premiere of Jonathan Leshnoff’s Piano Concerto. Tickets from $25.
