Stravinsky Rite of Spring Friday, September 15, 2017 7:30PM   ·   More Info »


Tito Muñoz, conductor
Alexander Laing, clarinet
Philippe Quint, violin

Bernstein: Prelude, Fugue and Riffs
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

From the smoke-filled nightclubs of 1950s New York to the peasant villages of premodern Russia, Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz kicks off the 70th Anniversary season with a bold and colorful program of musical masterpieces. Just over a century has passed since its scandalous premiere, yet Stravinsky’s folkloric ballet The Rite of Spring continues to surprise, excite and enthrall. In Prelude, Fugue and Riffs – a stroke of genius that pivots between polyrhythmic structures à la Stravinsky and the wailing strains of big band jazz – Muñoz and Principal Clarinetist Alexander Laing usher in a season-long focus on the music of Leonard Bernstein. Virtuoso violinist Philippe Quint returns to Symphony Hall to perform Tchaikovsky’s sizzling Violin Concerto.



Beethoven Fourth Symphony Saturday, November 11, 2017 7:30PM   ·   More Info »


Tito Muñoz, conductor
Amy Dickson, saxophone

Timo Andres: Bathtub Shrine
Philip Glass: Violin Concerto No. 1 (arranged for saxophone by Amy Dickson)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4

Beethoven’s symphonies have endured for centuries, speaking to generation upon generation. Tito Muñoz conducts the rousing Fourth Symphony, a work deploying the woodwind instruments in an intimate manner reminiscent of chamber music. Two brightly colored works from American composers Timo Andres and Philip Glass – the latter featuring the return of prodigious soloist Amy Dickson on the saxophone – illuminate Beethoven’s masterpiece.



Sibelius and Debussy Friday, January 26, 2018 7:30PM   ·   More Info »


Karina Canellakis, conductor
Stewart Goodyear, piano

Britten: Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 5, “Egyptian”
Sibelius: The Oceanides
Debussy: La Mer

Guest Conductor Karina Canellakis makes her Phoenix Symphony debut in an imaginative, impressionistic program sure to make a splash. Debussy, Britten and Sibelius contribute works that capture the many moods of the sea, with its sun-drenched waves and watery depths. Pianist Stewart Goodyear, proclaimed “a phenomenon” by The Los Angeles Times, returns to Symphony Hall in the sensuous, exotic “Egyptian” Piano Concerto of French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, who reportedly wrote this dazzling work after a boat ride up the Nile.



Elgar Cello Concerto Saturday, April 14, 2018 7:30PM   ·   More Info »


Tito Muñoz, conductor
István Várdai, cello

Nina Young: Agnosco Veteris
Elgar: Cello Concerto
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3, “Scottish”

Hungarian cellist István Várdai debuts with The Phoenix Symphony in Elgar’s rhapsodic Cello Concerto – the composer’s swansong, full of melancholy and farewell. Plus, Mendelssohn’s stirring “Scottish” Symphony – a symphonic souvenir of his visit to the highlands. Tito Muñoz opens the program with Nina Young’s Agnosco Veteris, full of striking contrasts of mood and sonority.
