MTT conducts Copland and Schumann

Buy Tickets

15-16 Season With relentless optimism, Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 dispels stormy scenes to make way for serene beauty and unbridled joy, all culminating in a victorious finale. Then, hear Copland’s distinctly American style, from his jazz-influenced Piano Concerto to Inscape, his unique take on serialism.
