Pianist Jonathan Biss returns to Detroit to perform Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto, first performed by his wife Clara and featuring a tender melody that spells out the letters of her name. Before that, hear Rossini’s bombastic Overture to La scala di seta. Please note: Originally scheduled guest pianist Louis Lortie is unable to appear in tonight’s concert. The DSO thanks Jonathan Biss for stepping in on short notice.
