Event Calendar

Beethoven & Brahms

Rossen Milanov, conductor
Shai Wosner, piano

Program:
BERMEL: A Shout, a Whisper, and a Trace
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 1
BRAHMS: Symphony No. 2 

This rich and substantial program offers the lyricism of Brahms’ warm-hearted symphony and the refreshing humor of Beethoven’s concerto performed by guest pianist Shai Wosner. Derek Bermel’s composition was inspired by the poignant letters of the great Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, written while in exile in America during the final years of his life.

Accompaniments:

 Postludes – Join our performers at the Thurber Bar following Friday’s concert or share your thoughts in a post-concert discussion with Rossen and composer Derek Bermel following Saturday’s concert.
