The NSO performs an exciting sneak preview of its upcoming 2006–2007 season! Associate Conductor Emil de Cou leads a program that includes Shostakovich’s Festive Overture and an excerpt from his Symphony No. 10, in anticipation of the NSO’s Shostakovich Centennial. Anderson's The Typewriter reveals the great things to come during Serious Fun, the NSO's celebration of humor in music. An excerpt from Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet offers a taste of the citywide Shakespeare in Washington festival. The first movement from Haydn’s “Surprise” Symphony looks ahead to the next installment of the NSO’s popular Composer Portrait series. An excerpt from Daphnis et Chloé showcases Ravel’s romantic ballet, which will be performed in full later in October. The finale from Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique gives you a glimpse into the new NSO Family Concerts. Other works to whet your appetite include Dvorák’s Slavonic Dance in C major and the final movement from Mahler’s Symphony No. 1.
