Prokofiev’s Fifth

Prokofiev’s richly melodic Fifth Symphony – described by the composer as “a symphony on the greatness of the human soul” – shimmers with the joy of one of the happiest times in his life. Gabriel Kahane, who wowed Oregon Symphony audiences two seasons ago with emergency shelter intake form, returns with Pattern of the Rail, his portrait of America as seen from an Amtrak train in the wake of the 2016 presidential election.
