IVES (arr. Schuman) Variations on “America” GERSHWIN  Rhapsody in Blue with Orion Weiss, piano BEETHOVEN  Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral” The Festival season opener celebrates two landmark anniversaries: Charles Ives' 150th birthday and his brilliant Variations on “America,” plus the 100th anniversary of George Gershwin's immortal Rhapsody in Blue with pianist Orion Weiss. After intermission, Beethoven's “Pastoral Symphony” is a musical depiction of five scenes in nature. One of the most sought-after soloists of his generation, Orion Weiss is widely regarded as a “brilliant pianist” (The New York Times) with “powerful technique and exceptional insight” (The Washington Post). With a warmth to his playing that outwardly reflects his engaging personality, he has dazzled audiences with his passionate, lush sound and has performed with dozens of orchestras across North America.
