Omaha Symphony Performs ‘Chopin and Swan Lake’
October 18th, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”Omaha Symphony will present a Masterworks concert tonight, opening Chopin and Swan Lake. Audiences can enjoy Tchaikovskyâ€™s music from the famous ballet as well as Shostakovitch’s â€œNinth Symphonyâ€ and music by Chopin, performed by guest solo pianist Charlie Albright, who the Washington Post called, â€œAmong the most gifted musicians of his generation.â€
This is Albrightâ€™s second time performing with the Omaha Symphony, and while Chopin, Shostakovitch, and Tchaikovsky might not have been contemporaries, their pieces complement one another for the evening.
Chopinâ€™s Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brilliante, especially with the accompaniment of the symphony orchestra, offer a dynamic and richly narrative experience.
The Omaha Symphony and pianist Charlie Albright will perform Chopin and Swan Lake at 7:30pm tonight, October 17 and tomorrow the 18th. For more information or tickets, visit OmahaSymphony.org.
