Drama and passion abound! Following the famous “timpani roll” opening, hear Grieg’s immensely popular Piano Concerto unfurl from the fingers of celebrated Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, the first-ever Artist-in-Association with the New York Philharmonic. Prokofiev’s lushly romantic ballet score conjures up all the magic and fantasy of the beloved fairy tale. And, feel the racing pulse of history’s most legendary ladies’ man in Strauss’ famous tone poem, one of the all-time great showpieces for orchestra.
