It's always a treat to see the National Symphony Orchestra, and for these performances maestro Krzysztof Urbanski alternates between programs featuring concerti by Macmillan and Saint-Saëns. Celebrated pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who plays with "classical refinement and cool beauty" (The New York Times) adds his touch to both. Hailed as one of the best pianists in the world, Thibaudet is sought-after by today's foremost orchestras, festivals, conductors and collaborative musicians for his virtuosity and charisma. You'll also be treated to works by Grieg and Lutoslawski. Learn More

As a lifetime music lover and student, I have to say that this chamber concert was the best in its genre. The piano playing was exquisite and the ensemble playing heavenly. It was also very impressive to see such a large, appreciative audience of all ages.
