Schumann’s Piano Concerto

Doors: 6:00 PM

Concert: 6:30 PM


Hannu Lintu, conductor

Lise de la Salle, piano

Internationally renowned guest conductor Hannu Lintu joins the Festival for a program beginning with the “concerto for birds and orchestra” Cantus Arcticus by Lintu’s countryman, Finland’s Einojuhani Rautavaara. One of Schumann’s most enduring works is his Piano Concerto, which creates a thrilling collaboration, rather than a tension, between the piano and orchestra. “The exhilaration didn’t let up for a second until her hands came off the keyboard,” says The Washington Post of guest pianist Lise de la Salle. Rounding out the program is Haydn’s Symphony No. 96, one of his famed London symphonies, which earned its nickname “Miracle” when a chandelier fell during its premiere and — by a miracle! — killed no one.



Einojuhani Rautavaara, Cantus Arcticus, Op. 61 (1974)
