"Casella, Prokofiev & Schumann" Artists Gianandrea Noseda, conductor Jean Efflam Bavouzet, piano Program Casella: Suite from La donna serpente Prokofiev: Concerto No. 5 in G major for Piano and Orchestra, Opus 55 Schumann: Symphony No. 2 in C major, Opus 61 About This Performance Influential in his native Italy, Casella composed an orchestral suite from his only major opera, La donna serpente (or “the serpent woman”), written in 1931. Pianist Jean Eflam Bavouzet performs Prokofiev’s dynamic fifth piano concerto, composed only a year after Casella’s opera. Victor de Sabata Guest Conductor Chair Gianandrea Noseda closes with Schumann’s hopeful Symphony No. 2, a remarkable piece given the composer’s struggle with depression and illness.
