An accomplished married couple, conductor David Robertson and pianist Orli Shaham first met through performing a Chopin concerto together. The Piano Concerto No. 2 is actually Chopin’s first composed concerto, the triumphant start of his incredible span of masterpieces for piano. Ravel’s “A Boat on the Ocean” is a beautiful work filled with sweeping motility, while his grand “Waltz” brings the program to an explosive conclusion.


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