Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Bernstein, Prokofiev and Schumann
Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Bernstein, Prokofiev and Schumann

Description: David Zinman, guest conductor Stephen Waarts, violin (Underwritten by Almy Legacy Fund) BERNSTEIN Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2 This Kansas City Symphony concert opens with Bernstein’s atmospheric On the Waterfront Suite, which brings together the best moments of the iconic conductor/composer’s film score. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto is a work of considerable charm and grace, demanding a virtuoso of the highest order. Schumann’s Second is one of his most personal statements, a work of unique beauty and power. Perhaps Schumann’s struggles are reflected in a work that moves from the agitation of the first two movements, to the haunting lyrical beauty of the third, to the triumphant finale. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit kcsymphony.org or call (816) 471-0400. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
