Kindred Spirits Orchestra: Grace, Fire and Beauty
Composed early on in his orchestral writing career, Schumann’s eloquently playful Overture, Scherzo and Finale is a light and gracefully succinct sinfonietta. Pianist Christina Petrowska-Quilico brings discipline and skill to Chinese contemporary composer Tan Dun’s New York Philharmonic commissioned score: Piano Concerto “The Fire.” Started in his early forties, Anton Bruckner periodically revised his Symphony No. 1 throughout is entire life, producing a sonorous and commanding work, akin to the composer’s mature style.
