In the first of two performances at the Spring for Music festival, the Detroit Symphony presents Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins, a "sung ballet," which stars the flamboyant rock-cabaret diva Storm Large.
Conductor Leonard Slatkin also leads the ensemble in two symphonic poems by Rachmaninoff: the Caprice bohémien, Op. 12 and The Isle of the Dead. The night concludes with Ravel's dizzying La valse. This is the Detroit Symphony's first Carnegie Hall appearance since 1994.
Our special chat guest is Dave Wagner, host at WRCJ in Detroit.
