Crowd favorites and 'heroic' musical adventures by Ginastera, Brahms and Prokofiev
This week, Michael Stern and Dan Margolies explore three beloved works—one from the 19th century and two from the 20th century. We'll hear Alberto Ginastera's ebullient "Four Dances from Estancia," Johannes Brahms' beloved violin concerto featuring Midori, and a recent performance of Sergei Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 with guest conductor Eduardo Strausser.
An agreement with the Kansas City Symphony allows us to share audio for this program up to four weeks after the program's original air date. You can listen to currently available episodes here.
