Cambridge Symphony Orchestra presents “Dancing with Demons”

June 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25

The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra offers its first-ever performance of the symphonic poem The Oak by Florence Price, an early-twentieth-century African-American composer whose works are experiencing a major contemporary renaissance thanks to her distinctive voice.

Max Levinson, a member of the piano faculty at both Boston Conservatory and the New England Conservatory, will join the CSO for Rachmaninoff’s devilish Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The concert will conclude with Berlioz’s hallucinatory 1830 Symphonie fantastique, a Romantic narrative about an obsessive love (or idée fixe) turned grotesque in the “March to the Scaffold” and “Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath.”

Program:

  • Berlioz – Symphonie fantastique
  • Price – The Oak
  • Rachmaninoff – Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
