Award-winning DC pianist Brian Ganz performs Prokofiev’s thrilling Piano Concerto No. 3, rich with lyrical passages and propulsive tempi. Prokofiev wrote several scores for films, including two on this program—the music for the lighthearted Lieutenant Kijé and the 1938 historical drama Alexander Nevsky, a collaboration with Sergei Eisenstein, one of the greatest Russian film directors.

A free pre-concert lecture will be offered in the Concert Hall at 6:45 pm.

This concert will run approximately 110 minutes with intermission.

Program:
PROKOFIEV
