CLASSICAL | RPO Performs Higdon Premiere 

As the 2017-18 concert series winds down, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and its music director, Ward Stare, gear up for a program that may prove to be among the season's best. There are few compositions in orchestral literature more hauntingly beautiful than "Four Sea Interludes" from Benjamin Britten's masterful opera "Peter Grimes." Devotees of symphonic music will find a lot to love in the polished lyricism and lush harmonies of Johannes Brahms's Symphony No. 2. But perhaps the most anticipated part of the concert will be the world premiere of prominent American composer Jennifer Higdon's Harp Concerto — an RPO co-commission featuring soloist Yolanda Kondonassis. A CITY review of this concert will be online Friday at

The RPO will perform "Brahms 2 and a World Premiere" on Thursday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, May 12, at 8 p.m. Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. $24-$104. 454-2100;;
