Oregon Symphony, Storm Large

BRETT CAMPBELL
7:30 pm Saturday, 2 pm Sunday, May 4-5., Saturday May 04 | $27-$115.
 
They may not be playing this excellent program at Carnegie Hall next month as originally planned, but the orchestra will have performed it in Seattle, and it’s a good thing, because as many people as possible need to hear the OSO, which, judging by its last few concerts, is playing near the very highest level of American orchestras. The concert features a reprise of one of the orchestra’s rare ventures into music by living composers, the excellent young, award-winning Cambodian composer Narong Prangcharoen’s short Phenomenon, which dazzled OSO audiences a few years back. And a too seldom performed 20th-century masterpiece, Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins, sung by Portland rock goddess Storm Large and a fab foursome of male singers, including opera greats Anton Belov and Richard Zeller. Plus there will be another last-century classic, Ravel’s vivacious The Waltz, and a 19th-century classic, Schubert’s magnificent, though never-completed, Symphony No. 8.
