Concert Description

Sensational young Italian pianist, 2013 Van Cliburn Silver Medalist (and Audience Choice Award winner) Beatrice Rana makes her Detroit debut with Bartók's Third Piano Concerto. Guest conductor Jun Märkl also leads a DSO premiere by contemporary Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa, and Berlioz' beloved 'Symphonie Fantastique.'

He has long been a highly respected interpreter of the core Germanic repertoire from both the symphonic and operatic traditions, and more recently for his refined and idiomatic Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen.
