  • In our final concert of the year, the YSO presents Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 10 in E-flat major, joined by internationally acclaimed pianists Peter Frankl and Eva Virsik, and Gustav Mahler’s monumental Symphony No. 5, an epic work nearly unrivaled in musical depth and emotional scope. Herbert Von Karajan once said, “a great performance of the Fifth is a transforming experience.” We know you’ll agree.

  • The Yale Symphony combines forces with Yale Glee Club and Yale Camerata to perform one of the most popular works of the 20th century, Carl Orff’s tremendous masterwork, Carmina Burana — an instantly recognizable piece that has found been celebrated not only in concert halls, but movie soundtracks as well. The piece is Orff’s greatest triumph, and has secured itself firmly in the international repertoire since the 1930s.

  • The Yale Symphony celebrates the music of Austria with renowned guest conductor, Andreas Stoehr, who takes us through one of the most prolific, definitive and creative centuries in the Western classical canon. Listen to the development of orchestral music as we take your from the early-Romanticism of Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture to the post-Romantic tonalities of Berg’s captivating Seven Early Songs, sung by celebrated mezzo-soprano, Janna Baty. These two works serve as the ideal bookends to Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 — a piece that encompasses feelings of intense melancholy and unabashed triumph over four beautiful movements.
