Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1
Performed by internationally acclaimed pianist Andrei Korobeinikov, Tchaikovsky’s swooning Piano Concerto No. 1 is the height of heart-on-your sleeve emotion. Augusta Read Thomas takes inspiration from the “biological ballet” of proteins in the human body for Dance Foldings, Ives craftily works “Turkey in the Straw” and other American folk tunes into his Symphony No. 2, and this wide-ranging program opens with Salieri’s entertaining overture to an opera about an opera.
Join us for a pre-concert chat about the evening’s program with Vice President of Artistic Planning Bob Neu, as well as guest artists and musicians from our orchestra, starting 45 minutes before the concert begins.
