Tonight at 7:30, at the Frederick Loewe Theatre at 35 W. 4th St., I’ll again give a pre-concert talk. The NYUO1 (New York University Orchestra 1) is playing a great program. I hope you can come. It’s free!
The program is:
- Berlioz, “Roman Carnival,” opus 9
- Grieg, Piano Concerto in A minor, opus 16
- Elgar, “Enigma” Variations, opus 36
The pianist will be Justin Junsang Wong, the winner of the 2017 NYU Steinhardt Piano Concerto Competition.
I very much enjoy these speaking projects. I believe in this school very much– its philosophy, programs, students and faculty colleagues. It’s a pleasure for me, as an organist, to dig more deeply into the symphonic repertoire and refine my ideas, crafting commentary that will really help the audience.
I hope you can come, and I hope you can find many ways to support young musicians and music education.
