Concert Details

Welcome, Music Director Ken-David Masur! For his inaugural concerts, Masur has selected music to which he feels a personal connection. Schumann’s only piano concerto; written at a time when such concertos were expected to be lightweight and flashy, Schumann’s stands apart for its substance and grace. Nicolas Namoradze performs the Schumann. This historic program closes with a suite from Strauss’s well-loved opera “The Knight of the Rose.”
