David Robertson conducted the St. Louis Symphony with pianist Orli Shaham as the soloist in the world premiere of Steven Mackey’s “Stumble to Grace” in concerts Sept. 23 and 24 in Powell Hall.  Co-commissioned by the St. Louis Symphony, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the concerto was written for Shaham  who will also perform it with the other two orchestras later this season.

On Thursday, Sept. 22 following the first rehearsal of “Stumble to Grace,” the St. Louis Symphony’s Eddie Silva spoke with composer Steven Mackey.

"The Rite of Spring" and "Firebird" by Igor Stravinsky, a performance with the Hubbard Street Dance Company,  Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B Minor, and a gala concert with violinist Itzahk Perlman are among the highlights of the St. Louis Symphony's 2011-2012 season.
