Description

Respighi: Ancient Airs and Dances: Suite No. 1

Haydn: Symphony No. 102 in B-flat Major

Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Major, Op. 44

Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2 may be somewhat less known than the First concerto, but it is no less musically rich and dynamic, especially in the hands of our frequent and esteemed guest, pianist Garrick Ohlsson.
