From Los Angeles and Calgary: iPalpiti and Eric Zuber
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
This past November, the Young Artists Showcase introduced the iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates on the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of its festival in Los Angeles. From a concert recorded at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the iPalpiti Festival Orchestra opens this show with a performance of Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony.
Then we move to a celebrated piano concerto performed live at the Honens competition in Calgary, Canada. We last saw Eric Zuber on the Yong Artists Showcase as a finalist in the American Pianists Association competition. This time, he’s joined by the Calgary Philharmonic and conductor Roberto Minczuk in the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor.
