Conductor Robert Spano (Conducting ’85) reunites with “force of nature” Yefim Bronfman (Piano ’77) to perform Béla Bartók’s ferocious Second Piano Concerto. Bronfman, a recent addition to the Curtis faculty, won a GRAMMY Award for his recording of the concerto. The program continues with Tchaikovsky’s brooding Fifth Symphony. In this work, resolve and sweeping optimism clash against bouts of steely melancholy.
This performance will be held in Alumnae Hall on the Immaculata University campus.
