A Concerto Celebration, Part 4
Thursday, September 29, 2016
In this fourth and final episode of his Concerto Celebration series, David Dubal presents a program featuring both well-loved and little-known composers. He spans the rich literature of piano concerto music, including pieces that may never be heard live on stage, but that have been given a life through recordings. From Mozart and Brahms to Harty and Herz, this program demonstrates the breadth and depth of the collaboration between a soloist and an orchestra.
Reflections from the Keyboard airs Thursdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 10 pm on WQXR.
