All Orchestral Weekend!

Alright, Cincinnati, here's your last chance to hear Paavo conduct the Cincinnati Symphony until the new year! And this week, there are no special guest artists visiting -- just our magnificent CSO playing their hearts out for us. What more could we ask?

Also, this week's schedule is a little different. Thursday night brings back the popular complimentary pre-concert buffet dinner in the beautiful Music Hall Ballroom (doors open at 6:15 pm), preceding the early 7:30 pm curtain time. Friday is one of the orchestra's rare morning concerts, beginning at 11 am. And Saturday, we're back to basics with the traditional 8 pm concert.

This week's program features KODÁLY's Concerto for Orchestra; BARTÓK's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta; and GRIEG's Incidental Music from Peer Gynt. Get your Program Notes here!
Listen to Paavo's Notes about these concerts. This concert will air via streaming audio on classical radio WGUC-FM (90.9) on Sunday, February 5, 2006 at 7:30 pm ET.

OOPS! We almost forgot! If you'd like to check out Paavo's recent recording of the Peer Gynt Suite with the Estonian National Symphony and soloists Peter Matthei (what a *hot* Don Giovanni he made several years ago when he appeared at the Cincinnati Opera!) and Charlotte Hellekant, click here to visit Amazon.com!
