Davidson Classical Series
Music Director and Conductor:
David Kadouch, piano
Bartók………….Piano Concerto No. 3, Sz. 119
Beethoven……Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral,” op. 68, F major
Beethoven’s beloved Sixth places the human element at the center of a living landscape with its vivid depictions of a bustling village market, a frightful storm, and the cheerful piping of a shepherd boy. First, enjoy Ligeti’s youthful, outdoorsy Concert Românesc; then welcome French pianist David Kadouch, as he performs Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto with its enchanting “night music” in the inner movement sandwiched between vivacious, folk-inspired excursions in the outer movements.
