Nikki Chooi Plays Brahms
Mendelssohn’s joyful symphony captures his happy impressions of a youthful journey through Italy in a program featuring a haunting, syncopated tango by Piazzolla, and highlighting BPO concertmaster, Nikki Chooi, tackling Brahms’ profound violin concerto, a “Mount Everest” of the repertoire.
Mendelssohn’s dramatic “Scottish” Symphony tells the tale of the composer’s travels through the highlands, and audiences will delight at the return of Drew Petersen to perform the Piano Concerto’s “Sturm und Drang” with dazzling virtuosity. The two monumental works are complemented by a high-spirited homage to the city of Detroit by contemporary composer Jonathan Bailey Holland.Find out more »
