“But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?” – ROMEO AND JULIET

Prokofiev’s most recognized and haunting score from one of the greatest love stories of our time, Romeo and Juliet is full of radiant textures and heart-breaking tenderness. Denis Kozhukhin makes his STL Symphony debut performing Shostakovich’s light-hearted and energetic Piano Concerto No. 2, written as a birthday gift for the composer’s son.
