Muti, Andsnes & Grieg Piano Concerto
Muti, Andsnes & Grieg Piano Concerto
Riccardo Muti opens his 10th season as music director with two dramatic Russian works—Alexander Scriabin’s haunting first orchestral composition and Shostakovich’s pensive Sixth Symphony, written during a time of prewar tension. The brilliant Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “one of the most gifted musicians of his generation,” performs Edvard Grieg’s treasured Piano Concerto.
