Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto
Bacewicz: Overture for Orchestra
Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1
Nielsen: Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable”
Fiery pianist Natasha Paremski brings one of her signature works to Eugene – Tchaikovsky’s powerful piano concerto that will make you leap to your feet at the end. The orchestra responds in kind with blazing passion in Nielsen’s Fourth Symphony, driven by what the composer described as "the elemental will to live.” Our evening begins with festive music by Grażyna Bacewicz – she’s a favorite of Francesco’s – which brims with vitality and joy.
LOCATION: Hult Center for the Performing Arts
