KEVIN RHODES, conductor
JEFFREY BIEGEL, piano
L’Italiana in Algeri Overture
Concerto for Simply Grand Piano and Orchestra
Symphony No. 4, A Major (Italian) (1834 revision)
World renowned pianist, Jeffrey Biegel, returns for a special event, the “almost” premier of a new piano “discovered” (written) by the great “only forgotten son of the Bach family”, PDQ Bach (alter ego of famed American composer, Peter Schickele). In partnership with orchestras across the US, the TSO commissioned this work from Mr. Schickele who continues to delight audiences with his satiric, fun take on traditional music!
The surprises continue with an old favorite, but with NEW notes! The recently discovered 2nd version of Mendelssohn’s “Italian” symphony will be heard for the first time in a TSO concert, providing listeners with some unexpected twists and turns.
