MICHAEL TILSON THOMAS : MONUMENTAL
In connection with his OSM residency, illustrious American conductor Michael Tilson Thomas offers a staggeringly moving program.
Grieg’s Two Elegiac Melodies, a work of passion and poetry, carries us to that flagship of the concerto repertoire, Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto no. 3. This alternately scathing, lyrical, meditative, and explosive masterpiece is a welcome challenge for 21-year-old Russian pianist Alexander Malofeev. To close this monumental program, a summit of majesty and grandeur: Schubert’s Symphony no. 9.
