Originally performed on November 17 & 18, 2017
Paavo Järvi, conductor
Alice Sara Ott, piano

Hindemith: Mathis der Maler
Grieg: Piano Concerto
Schumann: Symphony No. 3, Rhenish

CSO Music Director Laureate Paavo Järvi returns to conduct Schumann’s expansive Third Symphony. Better known as the Rhenish, this romantic symphony paints Schumann’s impressions of Germany’s Rhineland. Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler, bravely written during the rise of Nazi Germany, glorifies artistic freedom of expression over oppression. Pianist Alice Sara Ott, full of “crystalline tone and prodigious range of color” (The Guardian), performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto, an audience favorite.
