National Symphony Orchestra: Kozhukhin plays Grieg's Piano Concerto
11:30 AM, 7:00 PM, 8:00 PM
Following his celebrated NSO debut last season, acclaimed Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin returns to perform one of the most-loved concertos of all time, Griegs Piano Concerto. Conducted by incoming Music Director for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Gustavo Gimeno, the program also includes Shostakovich's brilliant Symphony No. 1. Written at the age of eighteen, the work is already characteristic of Shostakovich's trademark style: unafraid, exuberant, and delightfully dramatic.
