About This Performance

“[Matsuev’s] poetic instincts held fast in tender moments, with trills as thrillingly precise as one might ever hope to hear.”  -New York Times

Mussorgsky’s well-known tone poem tells the story of a witch’s Sabbath near Kiev; its theme made more famous by Disney’s 1940 film Fantasia.  Russian powerhouse Denis Matsuev returns to showcase a Russian masterpiece with Rachmaninoff’s well-known Piano Concerto No. 2.   Beethoven’s exciting Seventh Symphony is even more electrifying when guided by the baton of Manfred Honeck.
