The Madison Symphony Orchestra and Conductor John DeMain open this concert with Ravel’s fairy-tale inspired Mother Goose Suite, followed by Barber’s Piano Concerto, featuring brilliant Russian-American Pianist Olga Kern. The concert closes with Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 (From the New World), said to be inspired by the “wide open spaces” of the prairies that the composer visited during a trip to Iowa.
