The Rite of Spring

September 16 @ 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until September 16, 2023

Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor Garrick Ohlsson, piano


Julia Perry: Short Piece for Orchestra
Johannes Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 1
Igor Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

Our season opens with works that stretched boundaries and show the orchestra’s extraordinary range. Giancarlo Guerrero compares The Rite of Spring to “heavy metal” — still astounding more than a century after its debut. Julia Perry’s 1952 Short Piece packs in vigorous rhythms, pensive melancholy, and thunderous sound effects. And the one-and-only Garrick Ohlsson, a longtime collaborator in Nashville, joins us for Brahms’ sublime First Piano Concerto.
