Concert Description

What good fortune that we can experience Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto at all — his mentor initially deemed it “absolutely unplayable” and vulgar! Luckily Tchaikovsky ignored this critic, published his concerto, and unveiled what has become one of the most treasured pieces in piano repertoire. Framing the concerto are a premiere by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe, as well as Sibelius’ nostalgic First, a symphony inspired by the composer’s pride in his homeland of Finland.
