“[Ingrid] Fliter plays with such grace and heartfelt sincerity… by whatever magical means, [she] touches the heart,” claims Gramophone; Fliter joins the MSO for Mozart’s smiling Piano Concerto No. 17. This heartfelt program continues with music from Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet, complete with a masquerade ball, declarations of love, and a tragic ending for the star-crossed lovers. Michael Sanderling, whose “overriding interpretive priority seems to be sheer beauty of sound…” (The Classic Review), leads this endearing program.


The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
