BERNSTEIN Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront 
PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2 

This Kansas City Symphony concert opens with Bernstein’s atmospheric On the Waterfront Suite, which brings together the best moments of the iconic conductor/composer’s film score. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto is a work of considerable charm and grace, demanding a virtuoso of the highest order. Schumann’s Second is one of his most personal statements, a work of unique beauty and power. Perhaps Schumann’s struggles are reflected in a work that moves from the agitation of the first two movements, to the haunting lyrical beauty of the third, to the triumphant finale. Tickets from $25.
