Marcus Truschinski*

Symphony No. 5 was a hit at home and deemed a musical celebration to the end
of World War II. Discover how his experiences in America and his return to the
Soviet homeland after the war instilled his belief that music should be directed
towards the heroic, the beautiful, and the strong. Experience the entire work
performed in the second half of the concert with a deeper understanding of the
language of the composer — what he wants to express, and how he expresses it.

ROMANTIC ENCOUNTER

THE MIRACLE

Between the brash phalanx of Berlioz’s swashbuckling brass and the thundering
gravitas of Copland’s iconic “Fanfare for the Common Man” (in Symphony
No. 3), we welcome Pinchas and Amanda as they reprise their fabulous
performance of the Brahms Double Concerto, with which the duo made their
Madison Symphony debut in 2001. Learn more:

Symphony No. 96 is popularly called the Miracle Symphony because it is said
that, during its premiere, a chandelier crashed to the floor from the ceiling of the
concert hall. The audience managed to dodge the chandelier, thus the nickname.
