The National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Urbanski, is joined by celebrated pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet for alternating programs of concerti by Macmillan and Saint-Saëns. Thibaudet's piano style has been lauded by the New York Times for its "classical refinement and cool beauty." On June 20, Thibaudet will perform with the NSO on Macmillan's Piano Concerto No. 3, "The Mysteries of Light," which was premiered by Thibaudet in 2011. On June 21-22, Thibaudet will perform with the NSO on Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 5, a grandiose and exotic work that references the time the composer spent in Egypt. The piano section of the finale is so formidable that it has been used as an examination piece at the Conservatoire de Paris. The program for all performances will also include Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 and Lutoslawski's Concerto for Orchestra. Learn More

Loved Kelly O'Connor's interpretation of the Neruda Songs. Totally worth the price of admission. If you can snag a ticket, get thee to the Concert Hall.
