Jordan Pal & Gurpreet Chana: New commission: Upwell
Schumann: Piano Concerto in A minor
Brahms: Symphony No. 4 in E minor

Acclaimed pianist Lauma Skride joins the KWS for Schumann’s Piano Concerto, a piece brimming with joy from start to finish. Music Director Andrei Feher leads the orchestra in Brahms’s final symphony. Rich in allusions to Beethoven and full of impassioned intensity, it maintains an undercurrent of unrelenting tragedy, contrasting with the happiness of the piano concerto. Also featured is a new commission, Upwell, by composer Jordan Pal with Gurpreet Chana on the TABLIX (electronic Tabla) and other custom designed digital instruments.

IMAG will be used for this concert.

Learn more about the composers and the music with the free pre-concert talk at 7 pm. The Prelude for this concert will be hosted by Jordan Pal and Gurpreet Chana, and centered around their collaboration on the new commission Upwell.
