The Columbus Symphony presents CONCERTO FESTIVAL

Guest conductor Gregory Vajda and guest pianist Lilya Zilberstein join the CSO to celebrate the remarkable diversity of the concerto. While the Bach piano concerto is serious and substantial, the Shostakovich piece is a high-spirited romp featuring a major part for solo trumpet. Stravinsky’s work, inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg concertos, is a prime example of the athletic, lean-textured school of Neo-Classicism. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (614) 228-8600 or (800) 745-3000. www.columbussymphony.com
