Spokane Symphony Classics 2: Beethoven and Dvorak

October 8, 2017

View larger map ›

Oct. 7-8. Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto ignores convention, opening with lone piano and building up to a heroic struggle between soloist and orchestra. In the end, the orchestra succumbs to the piano’s charms. The work demands astounding technique and imagination from pianist Ran Dank. Dvořák sealed his international career with his Sixth Symphony. Joyful and pastoral, it pays homage to Brahms while painting an idealized portrait of Czech country life. The program begins with Daj Fujikura’s Banitza Groove! (2006), followed by Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4; and Antonin Dvořák’s Symphony No. 6. Morihiko Nakahara, conductor. Performances Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
