The most important and fascinating post-modernist composer in the world today, Valentin Silvestrov (Ukraine, born 1937), is presented with one of his greatest works: Postludium, featuring as solo pianist our recently graduated student of composition, conducting and piano, Oswaldo Machado.
Much-loved faculty member, the distinguished soprano, Kelley Nassief, sings Richard Strauss‘s matchless and unforgettable Four Last Songs; and Ms. Nassief joins the orchestra in the magical Finale, mixing the whimsical and mystical of Gustav Mahler’s profound Fifth Symphony.
