Divisions | DSO Live

Detroit Symphony Orchestra on stage
Detroit Symphony Orchestra

Fri., Apr. 12, 2019, 10:40am on 90.5 FM | It's the Detroit Symphony Orchestra from historic, acoustically acclaimed Orchestra Hall.

Ludovic Morlot leads Divisions, a powerful new work by Sebastian Currier written in commemoration of World War I; followed by Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, which remains one of his most seamless, poetic works. Plus, Prokofiev’s triumphant Fifth Symphony.

NOTE: Due to unexpected circumstances, pianist Hélène Grimaud's live performance of Piano Concerto No. 4 will not be a part of this broadcast. A recorded version of the piece will be heard in place of the live performance. All other portions of this program will be live. 

Ludovic Morlot, conductor
