It was Barber’s 100th birthday in March, and you can close out his centenary year with one of the composer’s most popular pieces, which received its premiere at Carnegie Hall in 1942. Alsop and her orchestra also take you back to fin-de-siècle Vienna, where Mahler’s re-orchestrations of the “Eroica” polarized audiences. And Trpceski dazzles with Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto.

Simon Trpceski will be signing CDs after this performance.
