Ward Stare, conductor
Ingrid Fliter, piano
BRAHMS/BRIGHT SHENG Intermezzo Op. 118, No.2 “Black Swan”
CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 2
BRAHMS Symphony No. 1
It was a creation nearly 20 years in the making, but when Brahms unleashed his symphonic powers at long last, it was with a mighty roar that both invoked the past and heralded the future. Chopin is synonymous with piano fireworks, and his second concerto is in good hands with Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter, a noted Chopin interpreter.
