The CSO to Perform R&B at Ohio Theatre, 1/10-11
In this fascinating concerto written as a gift to pianist Paul Wittgenstein who lost his right arm in WWI, Ravel's ingenious Piano Concert for the Left Hand is written with a one-handed piano part that sounds like it is being played by two hands and also demonstrates his love of jazz. Bruckner's final, unfinished Symphony No. 9 is a richly scored, stirring question for emotional fulfillment. The program, led by CSO Music Director Jean-Marie, will also include Messiaen's Les offrandes oubilees (Forgotten Offerings) and feature guest pianist Benedetto Lupo.
The Columbus Symphony presents Ravel & Bruckner at the Ohio Theatre (39 E. State St.) on Friday and Saturday, January 10 and 11, at 8pm.
