This week on Reflections from the Keyboard, David Dubal continues his exploration of piano concertos, celebrating the great collaborations between virtuosic soloists and orchestras. This program features performances of movements from concertos by Mozart and Tchaikovsky, as well as the joyful finale of Schumann’s piano concerto in A minor — the only one he ever wrote.
Reflections from the Keyboard airs Thursdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 10 pm on WQXR.
