MARK C SMITH CONCERT HALL

Grieg: Peer Gynt Suite No. 2
Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major
Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 in D
Ka Man Melody Ng, piano

Hungary proudly claims Liszt; Grieg and Sibelius today remain national hero figures for icy Norway and forested Finland, respectively. Our opening Classical program pays tribute to this power trio of musical revolutionaries, featuring Grieg’s music for Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, Sibelius’ Second Symphony – the “Symphony for Independence” – and pianist Melody Ng in Liszt’s electrifying Piano Concerto No. 1.
