Louisville owes its rise to prominence in the 20th century to more than just the Kentucky Derby! The world over, some say Louisville was known most for the international broadcasts of the Orchestra’s landmark recordings. In tribute to the Music Makes A City documentary, the Louisville Orchestra marks this program with a collection of essential connections to our city. Carter’s “Variations” is the most performed work ever commissioned by the Orchestra, and Lutosławski was the very first recipient of Louisville’s famous Grawemeyer Award for music composition in 1985. Louisville native Lee Luvisi has appeared with the Orchestra more than any other solo artist in history, will join the stage for the famed “Emperor” Concerto.
