Jeffrey Kahane conductor

MOZART Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat major, K.595
CHRISTOPHER CERRONE Will There Be Singing (LACO commission; world premiere)
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944, “The Great”

Firsts and a fond farewell! Kahane opens the concert with a new work by Christopher Cerrone, composer of the Invisible Cities opera premiered at Union Station, and closes with a striking performance of Schubert’s final symphony. At the heart of the evening is a signature experience of the Kahane era: Jeffrey conducting Mozart from the keyboard. For his farewell, Kahane has chosen Mozart’s final piano concerto. No doubt, he will again let “Mozart’s shimmering cascading phrases convey the emotion.” Be there!

pre-concert program

Concert Preludes are fun, informative and free to all ticket holders.
