Available Concert Dates

Chopin and Shostakovich

After Stalin died, Shostakovich, having suffered under the repressive Soviet regime, unleashed his fury
against the dictator in his Tenth Symphony — a titanic struggle pounded out in a code of savage pitches equivalent to his initials D-S-C-H (in German musical notation) — crushing the tyrant in the triumphant finale. Raising the curtain is Chopin’s rhapsodic Concerto No. 1, full of poetry and passion.

Daniil Trifonov Piano Recital

With “colorful, dazzling and imaginative playing,” virtuoso Daniil Trifonov ranks as “one of the most awesome pianists of our time” (The New York Times). His DSO recital offers works by Rameau, Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Beethoven. Do not miss this unique opportunity to see one of the most important pianists working today in a rare Dallas recital.

All Dates

Mahler Symphony No. 5

For intense emotions and radiant beauty, nothing can surpass Mahler’s Fifth. A movement marked “tempestuously. With great vehemence” stands alongside the achingly beautiful Adagietto — a gift to his beloved wife Alma — scored for strings and harp alone, a kind of “resting place” before the grand drama of the finale. The legendary conductor Herbert von Karajan called the Symphony “a transformative experience.” Coupled with the world premiere of Anna Clyne’s visceral and arresting Piano Concerto, this concert will have the emotional depth and range of the DSO on full display.

All Dates

Brahms Requiem

Fabio Luisi leads all musical forces (including former DSO artist-in-residence Matthias Goerne) in Brahms’s inspiring work. Gone are the rafter-shaking Last Judgment and punishment for sinners; instead, this Requiem’s centerpiece is the gentle “How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place,” comforting the bereaved and giving them the hope for eternal life. A balm for the soul. With English supertitles.

All Dates

Also Sprach Zarathustra

Millions of movie fans the world over have heard the grand fanfare from Also Sprach Zarathustra at
the beginning of Kubrick’s epic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. But if you’ve never heard it live, you’re in for a thrill — a multitude of brasses, the full orchestra, and the Lay Family Concert Organ, all hailing a primeval sunrise. To open the concert, Co-Concertmaster Nathan Olson solos in Britten’s fiendishly difficult Violin Concerto.
