In this weeks concert, hear superstar pianist Daniil Trifonov, a master of sensitive expression, in Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, a tour-de-force of lyrical and technical prowess. Listen to her Symphony No. 1, composer Florence Pricecombines elements from the Romantic symphonic tradition with hymn-like melodies and the rhythms of Black music to create a distinctly American style. Also, enjoy brass fanfares and exuberant percussion enliven the march-like atmosphere of the Festive Overture by William Grant Still.

The DSO Live is made possible thanks to WKAR’s partnership with WRCJ in Detroit.
