Grieg's Piano Concerto

Description

Zubin Mehta said of Spain’s pre-eminent pianist, “I have only heard this sound from Rubinstein,” while Sir Simon Rattle commented: “There is something special with Joaquín Achúcarro. Very few musicians can extract this kind of sound from the piano.” This not-to-be-missed debut is part of a program that includes Grieg’s ever popular Peer Gynt, musical fairy-tale ballet music by Stravinksy and a magical, mystical concerto from Finland that includes taped bird songs interacting with the orchestra. Rune Bergmann, conductor Joaquín Achúcarro, piano GRIEG: Peer Gynt Selections GRIEG: Piano Concerto RAUTAVAARA: Concerto for Birds and Orchestra STRAVINSKY: Firebird Suite (1919) Preview Talk with host Alan Chapman at 7 p.m.
