The Orchestra will perform Elliott Carter’s “Variations” along with Witold Lutosławski's “Fanfare for Louisville.” Both compositions were among those commissioned by the Louisville Orchestra. In addition, Louisville native Lee Luvisi will perform on piano in Beethoven's famed “Emperor” Concerto.
The Orchestra is conducted by Jorge Mester, who has served 17 years as Music Director. In his first 12 years (1967-1979), he recorded more than 70 world premieres on the Louisville Orchestra’s First Edition label.
