National Philharmonic
Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 8:00 PM
Music Center at Strathmore

Back to Calendar

Leon Fleisher, piano
Piotr Gajewski, conductor

Leon Fleisher performs Prokofiev’s demanding left-hand piano concerto, commissioned by philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein’s brother Paul, a concert pianist who lost his right arm in World War I. Come under the spell of Mussorgsky’s celebrated orchestral tone poem that portrays a spooky, nocturnal witches’ Sabbath, and listen to strains of Tchaikovsky’s heartbreaking final symphony.

TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6, “Pathetique”
