Liszt's Dante Symphony

Rossen Milanov, conductor
Brian Mangrum, horn
Columbus Symphony Chorus – Ronald J. Jenkins, chorus director

The seldom heard “Dante” Symphony journeys through Dante’s Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso, where the divine voices of the women of the Columbus Symphony Chorus enchant in an angelic Magnificat. This multimedia event includes a projection of the famous illustrations of Dante’s The Divine Comedy by French artist Gustave Doré. CSO Principal Horn Brian Mangrum makes his solo debut with Richard Strauss’ Horn Concerto.

Please note: For parents and guardians planning to bring children to the concert, Gustave Doré’s hauntingly beautiful artwork from the famous Divine Comedy may be graphic in nature for young patrons.
