MORIHIKO NAKAHARA, CONDUCTOR
RAN DANK, PIANO

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 Fujikura's Banitza Groove!
