IBERT: Hommage à Mozart

MOZART: Piano Concerto in A, K.488
     Simone Dinnerstein, piano

SCHUBERT: Symphony No. 2 in B-flat Major, D.125

CELEBRATE with us as we open our 40th Anniversary season in spectacular fashion with American pianist Simone Dinnerstein, described by TIME magazine as having “arresting freshness and subtlety.” With an impressive career that has taken her around the globe, and included performances and recordings with some of the most acclaimed orchestras, composers, and artists of our day, her performance of this Mozart piano concerto is certain to leave a lasting impression.

Ibert’s Hommage á Mozart makes a fitting lead-in to the evening’s concerto, and our season opener will conclude with a wonderful symphony by Schubert.  Maestro Heiichiro Ohyama, one of our esteemed former Music Directors, will return to Ithaca to launch this landmark year as we pay tribute to the past 39 years and look forward to the next era.  We can think of no better way to start our 40th Season!

This evening’s soloist is sponsored by The Elliott Family, in loving memory of Peter Albert Elliott.
