The Sophia News | Review: Buffalo Philharmonic in West Palm Beach
After a successful tour of Poland in March 2018, the BPO returned to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota, Florida, where we last performed eight years ago. Historically, the BPO has been a beloved visiting orchestra in Florida and we were honored to return to play in some of our favorite venues like St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Vero Beach, and the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
Italian pianist Fabio Bidini joined the tour as the guest soloist. Mr. Bidini has been praised as one of the top-flight pianists of this generation. This Florida tour marks his seventh performance with the BPO. The tour was designed to highlight the lush, romantic signature style of the BPO and included Borodin’s Overture to Prince Igor, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, and Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2, which featured Mr. Bidini on piano.
The BPO was honored to embark on this Florida tour, as tours allow us to increase our national and international reputation, as well as bring some hometown pride to our Florida supporters.
