Kornel Thomas, guest conductor

Shostakovich: October, Op. 131
Strauss: Four Last Songs
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
The DPO's 67th season kicks off on October 3 with Revolution! conducted by former Associate Conductor Kornel Thomas. The program opens with Shostakovich’s October, a piece written to commemorate the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. The commanding and expressive soprano Elizabeth Baldwin lends us her “powerhouse voice” for Strauss’ operatic Four Last Songs. The evening rounds off with Beethoven’s classic Symphony No. 7. Strauss was revolutionary in his orchestrations and Beethoven was revolutionary in every thing he did — he changed the world of music forever.
