Shulamit Ran – Chicago Skyline
Dmitri Shostakovich – Cello Concerto No. 1
Johannes Brahms – Symphony No. 3

The Columbia Orchestra celebrates Jason Love’s fifteenth anniversary with three things he’s known for: new American music, great cello playing, and the music of Brahms! Israeli-American composer Shulamit Ran portrays Chicago’s monumental architecture in a blazing work for brass and percussion. Then Maestro Love passes the baton to guest conductor Brian Stone and picks up his cello for Shostakovich’s virtuosic masterpiece. Finally Jason closes this celebratory concert with one of his favorite works, Brahms’ lyrical Third Symphony.
