GLUCK: Dance of the Furies and Dance of the Blessed Spirits from Orpheus and Eurydice BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor ARVO PÄRT: Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten STRAVINSKY: Symphony in C Concert Duration: Approx. 1 hour, 55 minutes with intermission. What’s interesting about this concert: • Hailed as “the most astounding pianist of our age,” (The Times, London) Grammy winner Daniil Trifonov makes his Cincinnati debut. • The Emperor— a fitting epithet for a powerful work and Beethoven’s last piano concerto. • Gluck and Beethoven’s innovative works complement contemporary compositions by Stravinsky and Pärt which trace modernity onto the past.
