Krannert Center Events: April 2018: Music of Titans

Music of Titans

Stephen Alltop, music director and conductor
Sun Chang, piano

CUSO’s exploration of Gustav Mahler’s music continues with the autobiographical Symphony No. 1. This spectacular work, scored for a huge orchestra, draws upon a vast array of musical influences in Mahler’s life, from children’s songs to military marches. Contrasting Mahler’s titanic opus will be Garrop’s Becoming Medusa, a fascinating movement that traces the progression of this frightening mythological figure from “gorgeous” to “Gorgon.” You will also delight in the debut of the immensely talented and charming pianist Sun Chang, playing Mozart’s elegant Concerto No. 14.

Garrop: Mythology Symphony, I. Becoming Medusa
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat Major, K. 449
Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D Major, “Titan”

Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 7:30pm in the Foellinger Great Hall
