“We are thrilled to welcome the celebrated 1997 Van Cliburn Competition laureate back to perform one of the landmark works of the piano repertoire, Beethoven’s great C Minor Concerto. Nakamatsu and I have a long shared history of collaborative music making,” remarks Music Director and Conductor, Mitchell Sardou Klein.
The program for these concerts consists entirely of major masterworks by “the three B’s.” To begin, Bach’s Cantata Chorale: Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott, and Great Fugue: Clavierubung III, Wir glauben all’an einem Gott come to vibrant symphonic life in the hands of the master conductor and orchestrator Leopold Stokowski the greatest orchestral colorist of all time. Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto stems from his dark, stormy mode, with music that challenges any pianist’s or orchestra’s technical and interpretive powers. Lastly, Brahms’ glorious and triumphal Second Symphony completes this trio of majestic classical benchmark achievements. This is a work of soaring melodies, brooding intensity, and sublime serenity, ending in a blazing finale that leaves the listener breathless.
