Marin Alsop, Music Director
Gabriela Montero, piano
Bartók // Romanian Folk Dances
Bartók // Concerto for Orchestra
Tchaikovsky // Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor
Revered pianist Gabriela Montero returns for Tchaikovsky’s virtusotic Piano Concerto No. 1. “[She] has everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power… and, best of all, unsentimental expressivity” (The New York Times). Bartók combines his love of folk music with traditional classical forms and paints a picture with his Concerto for Orchestra, an innovative piece that pops with vivid colors.
Join us in the lobby of the Meyerhoff for a post-concert performance on Friday, January 19, featuring Gabriela Montero.
