Christoph König, conductor Inon Barnatan, piano
GRIEG Piano Concerto BRUCKNER Symphony No. 7
SIBELIUS Symphony No. 7 BARTÓK Piano Concerto No. 3 BRAHMS Symphony No. 1
From the high drama of those gripping first chords to the rollicking energy of the final movement, Grieg’s Piano Concerto is a perennial favorite. FWSO Artistic Partner Vadym Kholodenko performs this captivating concerto. Then be transported to the mystical world of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7, a marvelous work with many contrasts, containing some of the sunniest and the darkest elements of the composer’s music.
German conductor Christoph König leads the orchestra in Sibelius’ enigmatic Symphony No. 7 and Brahms’ monumental Symphony No. 1, which is full of melting lyricism and soaring expressiveness. Plus, pianist Inon Barnatan performs Bartók’s greatly lyrical and touchingly naturalistic Piano Concerto No. 3.
