The Baltimore Symphony under the direction of Marin Alsop opens the 2013 Spring for Music festival with a program featuring Time for Three, a high-energy string trio that plays an assortment of bluegrass, jazz, folk and hybrid styles. They give the New York premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s Concerto 4-3, a work composed especially for them.
Also on the program are John Adams’ Shaker Loops, one of the composer’s most famous works, and Prokofiev's rarely performed Fourth Symphony.
