The Philadelphia Orchestra returns to the Washington Performing Arts season under the baton of principal guest conductor Stéphane Denève, who this season begins his music directorship of the St. Louis Symphony. The program focuses on the orchestra’s championing of both contemporary music—with English composer Anna Clyne’s This Midnight Hour—and symphonic standards like Prokofiev’s ravishing Romeo and Juliet. Peter Lieberson’s Pulitzer-winning Neruda Songs, which has become a modern classic and powerfully expresses the poetry of Pablo Neruda, showcases Kelly O’Connor’s “breathtaking…rich, beautiful voice” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
