The Music Center
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Prokofiev Romeo & Juliet
The worlds of opera, ballet, comedy and tragedy infuse this melodious program, bookended by Mozart’s vivacious Marriage of Figaro Overture and Prokofiev’s dramatic Suite from Romeo and Juliet. Russian piano sensation Yulianna Avdeeva performs Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, the work that first won the composer international fame. A feast of keyboard virtuosity and irresistible lyrical themes, it is highlighted by a magical nocturne in which a rapturously beautiful melody makes time stand still.
