Terrence Wilson, our soloist for this concert

This concert will take place live at the King Center in Melbourne on April 10, 2021 at 7:30 pm.
Additionally, it is being offered as a delayed stream for those who may not be comfortable attending in person.

PROGRAM:
WHITACRE Lux Aurumque
GRIEG Piano Concerto in A minor
SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2 in D Major

Edvard Grieg was eager to establish himself as an important composer from a young age. He was just 25 when he composed his only piano concerto, a work of tremendous power and drama. Grieg accomplished his goal and his piano concerto is still one of the most well-known and most often performed concertos today, over 150 years later. Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold) is characterized by close harmonies and elegant simplicity. Jean Sibelius’ Second Symphony was both compositionally daring and publicly successful. Written against the backdrop of the rise of Finnish nationalism, the symphony received the nickname “Symphony of Independence.” As unconventional as it may have been at the time, it remains a staple in the orchestral repertoire today. The spectacular finale provides the perfect ending to the BSO’s unconventional 67th season.
