QUEENS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, MARCH 22, 2020
Next up, Enter Serenity. This is how I nicknamed the program we are performing in the wonderful Le Frak Concert Hall at the Queens College. The concert opens with a celebration: the legendary pianist Misha Dichter is turning 75 this year! I invited Misha to play Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major. You know the second movement, even if you don't know you do. Talk about music that can dispel any darkness!
This program is only 60 minutes long, so we plunge straight into our symphony - Dvořák's Eight, to be concrete. It is a bucolic work, filled with warmth and splendor and the appreciation of all the goodness life brings. If your life battery feels depleted, this concert will give you a full recharge. And, the QSO concerts are free, so just make a reservation here!
