Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medalist Ralph Votapek returns to the Symphony stage, bringing his acclaimed artistry to Mozart’s dark, dramatic and impassioned Piano Concerto No. 20. In Lacrimae Beati, or “Tears of the Blessed One,” contemporary composer Richard Danielpour contemplates Mozart (“the Blessed One”) and the famous Lacrimosa from his Requiem. The majestic and profound 3rd Symphony is simply Mendelssohn at his best.
