KC Symphony: Symphonic Metamorphosis


Friday June 7, 2019 • 8 p.m. • Kauffman Center • TBA

8 p.m.


Disney’s animated classic, “Fantasia,” prominently features Leopold Stokowski’s lush orchestration of Bach’s famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, and likewise, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis converts earlier music (in this case, by Carl Maria von Weber) into an orchestral tour-de-force. The Symphony also welcomes back one of the world’s preeminent pianists, Yefim Bronfman, to perform Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, an iridescent and dazzling work with a fiery finish.

It will be held at the Kauffman Center from June 7 to 9. The first two performances will be at 8 p.m., and the final one will be at 2 p.m. Tickets are not on sale yet.
