Stewart Goodyear to guest this week

This is your last opportunity until April to hear Paavo with the Cincinnati Symphony before he goes off on some impressive guest conducting gigs with the Chicago Symphony and Los Angeles Philharmonic. And this week, you also can have a complimentary dinner in Music Hall Ballroom before the Thursday night concert!

From the CSO website: "The brilliant young pianist Stewart Goodyear returns to perform a work he has made his own—the fresh and fiery Bartok “Second.” Also: Shostakovich’s powerful 6th Symphony, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth, and Tüür’s Insala deserta ("Deserted Island"), which was inspired by an ancient travelogue describing his Estonian homeland."

Performances are Thursday, March 16, at 7:30 pm, with complimentary dinner at 6:15 pm; and Saturday, March 18, at 8 pm.
