I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. It’s ALWAYS an honor to be on stage with this band. Stewart Rose is the man, and I never stop learning from him.

Jessie Montgomery and I were at Juilliard together, and it’s pretty surreal that I’m now playing a concert with her music on it! I’m so happy for her.

Program

JESSIE MONTGOMERY: Shift, Change, Turn, and Variations (World Premiere, commissioned by Orpheus

MENDELSSOHN: Piano Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Op. 40 

MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90 (“Italian”)

Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony glitters with urban inspiration, from the brilliant sunshine of Rome to the religious pageantry of Naples. The passionate Piano Concerto No. 2, written for a festival in Birmingham, energized Mendelssohn’s ardent fans in England’s second city. This suave showpiece spotlights the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki, fresh off a recording and tour of European hotspots with Orpheus. Augmenting this musical cityscape, a world premiere from local composer Jessie Montgomery taps into the rhythms of modern life. - orpheusnyc.org
