Wagner: Prelude, Act III, from Lohengrin
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 25 TSO PREMIERE
Wagner: Ring without Words TSO TSO PREMIERE
Complimentary “Concert Comments” with the conductor and guest artist take place one hour before the performance and give you insight into what you’re about to hear.
A frequent collaborator with Joshua Bell, The New York Times claims Denk is “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination.” He makes his TSO debut performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25, one of the most complex that Mozart wrote for the piano and considered one of his greatest works. The program opens with Prelude to Act III, from Lohengrin, perhaps Wagner’s most recognizable prelude, and concludes with his massive Ring Cycle distilled into the high points of the entire composition.
