Music Director Michael Stern leads a trio of sensational, Russian-inspired masterpieces to launch the 2017/18 Kansas City Symphony season. From the virtuosic pyrotechnics, unforgettable melodies and lush orchestration of Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto to the heartfelt homage, Odna Zhizn (A Life), by American composer Christopher Rouse, the program swells with incredible energy and life-affirming beauty. Rimsky-Korsakov wrote Capriccio espagnol as an orchestral showpiece that “was to glitter with dazzling color.” Tickets from $25.
