Concert Description

Winner of the exceptionally prized Gilmore Artist Award, Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter returns to Detroit in a performance of Mendelssohn's first piano concerto. Hans Graf leads Prokofiev's self-nicknamed "Classical" symphony — a playful neoclassical homage to Haydn — and Beethoven's triumphant seventh symphony.
