The South Florida Symphony Orchestra presents Double Speak & Hidden Meanings, a program featuring the eminent American pianist, Christopher Taylor, who will perform Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto, No.3. Completed in 1921, this concerto is one of his most popular works. In addition, Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso will conduct Liszt’s Hamlet: Symphonic Poem No.10 and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10. Premiered in 1953 after Stalin’s death, this symphony was Shostakovich’s first major work after his 1948 denunciation. With Hamlet, Liszt sought to recreate the movement works by inventing the symphonic poem, a piece of music inspired by literary and other nonmusical sources.
