JESSIE MONTGOMERY: Source Code - PSO Premiere
TCHAIKOVSKY: Piano Concerto No. 1
DVO?ÁK: Te Deum - PSO Premiere
About this Performance
"Worthless," declared the composer's friends. "Impossible to play." But Tchaikovsky refused to change a note of what became history's most popular piano concerto. Beatrice Rana plays Tchaikovsky’s First Concerto. She “possesses a soul that belies her years, and more than a touch of genius,” says Gramophone Magazine. Also, Manfred Honeck leads new work by young American Jessie Montgomery, her “Source Code.” And the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh roars in works of praise by Poulenc and Dvo?ák.
