ECKART PREU, CONDUCTOR
CHARLIE ALBRIGHT, PIANO

Smetana’s ode to the Moldau River and Dvořák’s ‘tragic’ Seventh Symphony express the longing for Czech independence. Many consider this to be the greatest of Dvorák’s symphonies. Washington State native Charlie Albright performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, an intricate work of triumph, beauty, and lightheartedness written in the face of personal tragedy. Albright, a child prodigy (SEE VIDEO) is a master of improvisation (SEE VIDEO), and will delight concertgoers with a cadenza of his own creation. 

There is a pre-concert talk one hour before each performance. Come early to learn more about the music you will hear. This talk is free to all ticketholders. 

The Music

  • Bedřich Smetana — "The Moldau" from Ma Vlast (My Homeland)
