Two orchestral tone poems by Gershwin and Sibelius bookend this fabulous piano concerto concert of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor.
In 1928, Gershwin composed his Rhapsody in Blue on a train trip to Boston and later described it as “a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America”. In the same sense, Grieg’s Piano Concerto was his own musical kaleidoscope of Norwegian folk music. Once again, this is a concert not to be missed by piano concerto lovers!
