In September, Markus Rhoten, Principal Timpani, The Carlos Moseley Chair, was featured in Playbill's Q&A feature. Here was one exchange:

What are you especially looking forward to this season?

Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11, The Year 1905. It’s an amazing, dramatic, powerful piece and the timpani part is like a concerto.

Feel the drama October 17–19, when Semyon Bychkov conducts the symphony, which vividly depicts the tragic events of the Russian Revolution of 1905, on a program with Rachmaninoff's Variations on a Theme of Paganini.
