Berlioz, Khachaturian, Walton

Aram Khachaturian

This weekend, the St. Louis Symphony performs works by Hector Berlioz, Aram Khachaturian (pictured), and William Walton. If you can’t make it to Powell Hall this weekend, be sure to tune in to St. Louis Public Radio for the broadcast or live stream, which begins at 8:00 CST.

My program notes can be found here:


Borodin and Tchaikovsky


On December 2 through December 4, the Saint Louis Symphony performs works by Alexsandr Borodin and Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky (pictured). Ward Stare conducts, with solo performances by David Halen, concertmaster, and Allegra Lilly, principal harp.

I wrote program notes for this concert, which appear in a slightly altered form in the printed program and on the STL Symphony website.



Mendelssohn, Brahms, Mendelssohn


The St. Louis Symphony performs Mendelssohn’s “The Fair Melusina” overture, Brahms’s Double Concerto, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 (“Scottish”) on February 7, 8, and 9. I wrote about the program here:
