Morgan Concert Hall, BPC
Conductor Vasily Petrenko and pianist Stewart Goodyear join the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for a special performance of Mendelssohn's masterful Piano Concerto No. 1 in Morgan Hall. The orchestra brings to life the legend of Don Juan in Richard Strauss' tone poem, and will dazzle you with Dvořàk's Symphony No. 8, a work that draws inspiration from one of the Czech composer's greatest loves, the cheery and lyrical folk music of his native Bohemia. Tickets for this performance are $20-55.
R. Strauss - Don Juan
Mendelssohn - Piano Concerto No. 1
Dvořák - Symphony No. 8
Update from the ASO: Pianist Ingrid Fliter is no longer able to make the trip to Atlanta this weekend, so Stewart Goodyear has graciously agreed to step in to perform Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Orchestra.
