One evening, two titans—the final showcase

On the penultimate night of the 2018 season, join the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra for its final showcase. Pianist Pedja Muzijevic, whose expertise and artistry are well known to regulars at the Bank of America Chamber Music series, performs Mozart’s beguiling and spirited Piano Concerto no. 15 in B-flat Major. Mahler’s first symphony, “The Titan,” concludes the program, taking listeners on a journey from a single opening pitch to a fourth movement the composer describes as springing “suddenly, like a lightning bolt from a dark cloud.” Hear the extraordinary talents of this nationally acclaimed orchestra under the baton of former Festival Music Director Steven Sloane.
