Brahms' First Piano Concerto

Conducted by Yaniv Dinur
January 19 & 21 7:30 PM

Drama, tragedy, romance; the ESO has it all in a program of Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Prokofiev. Canadian pianist Katherine Chi returns to the Winspear for the towering First Piano Concerto by Brahms, who wrote to his close friend, Clara Schumann, about the second movement: “I am painting a gentle portrait of you.”

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Saturday, January 21st evening concert, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

Program to include:

Prokofiev "Classical" Symphony
Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1

Program subject to change.

This concert will include an intermission.
