Grieg & Sibelius
Andrei Feher, conductor
Alexandra Dariescu, piano
Barbara Assiginaak: Megyaakwaang (In The Woods) (KWS Commission)
Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor
Sibelius: Symphony No. 3 in C major
Romanian pianist Alexandra Dariescu joins Andrei Feher for Grieg’s epic Piano Concerto in A minor. Both large-scale and tender, the piano concerto is contrasted perfectly by Sibelius’s Symphony No. 3, a compact crystallization of ideas from chaos in three movements. The KWS commissioned work Megyaakwaang by Barbara Assiginaak opens this spirited program.
