Mussorgsky: Introduction to Khovantschina
Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16
Daniel Hsu, piano
Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade, Op. 35
Daniel Hsu, 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Bronze Medalist, tackles the diabolical enigma of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a true heart racer that remains one of the most technically formidable piano concertos in the standard repertoire.
The season concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a vivid orchestral work inspired by the tales of the Arabian Nights.
