BEETHOVEN Coriolan Overture
PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2

Coriolanus and Beethoven were both passionate, imperious, and iron-willed—so it’s no surprise that the Coriolan Overture is powerful music! Concertmaster Katherine Winterstein is featured in Sergei Prokofiev’s second concerto, a piece which uses Russian-inspired melodic elements--brilliantly orchestrated--and displays the composer’s trademark ironic sense of humor. Schumann’s second symphony was written as he continued to wrestle with mental illness. His staunch wife Clara championed her beloved genius’s progress as he wrote music that is marked with “fire, imagination, freshness, and originality.”
