TSE - Three Musings
SCHUMANN - Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54
BERLIOZ - Symphonie Fantastique
Berlioz could not get the girl of his dreams. So he wrote her a symphony instead - a huge, opium-fueled riot of his passion and nightmares, his ecstasy and despair, his tantrums and moments of tenderness. It is a revolutionary work you simply have to hear live.
With recent performances with the orchestras of Houston, Baltimore and Indianapolis, Andrew Staupe is a pianist on the rise. He joins us to perform the fiery and dreamy Schumann Piano Concerto.
We begin our concert with Three Musings, a set of three different sonic portraits by Roydon Tse, winner of the first prize in the SOCAN Foundation Awards for young composers.
