Guest conductor Michał Nesterowicz shapes the sumptuous melodies and exotic soundscapes of Scheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov’s epic symphonic poem based on the tales of One Thousand and One Nights. The program opens with Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2—a virtuosic dazzler of bold strokes and robust colors—performed by Van Cliburn Gold Medalist Yekwon Sunwoo.
