ANNA CLYNE This Midnight Hour
DVOŘÁK Violin Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 4

This blockbuster program with Michael Stern and your Kansas City Symphony reveals Beethoven’s lighter side in his joyous Fourth Symphony. Berlioz described the beautiful second movement as “breathed by the archangel Michael.” Dvořák’s Violin Concerto, with its flights of fancy and festive Czech folk music, gets the superstar treatment from Midori, another disciple of Isaac Stern. Drawing inspiration from Spanish and French poetry, This Midnight Hour by Anna Clyne seeks to “evoke a visual journey for the listener.” Tickets from $25.

Saturday’s concert supported by:
