Chicago Symphony Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates begins this concert with a zippy fanfare entitled "Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release" followed by the second installment of the Cliburn Project featuring gold-medalist Vadym Kholodenko in Brahm's Piano Concerto #2. The second half brings us Mussorgsky's colorful and evocative piano piece transformed by the brilliant orchestration of French composer Maurice Ravel into this extremely popular rendition of this melodious tour-de-force!
