GRIEG Piano Concerto
DVORAK Symphony No. 8
From Scandinavia’s fjords to the fields and forests of Bohemia, beloved music by Grieg and Dvorak, together with the delightful discovery of American composer David Diamond’s Rounds, this concert will enchant you. Pianist Andrew von Oeyen dazzles in Grieg’s sparkling Piano Concerto, and guest conductor Alistair Willis takes us on a sojourn through Dvorak’s 8th Symphony. A landmark of 19th-century symphonies, Dvorak’s joyful and melodic spontaneity continues to inspire us over a century after its composition.
