UMI GARRETT: PIANO PRODIGY – SEPTEMBER 25 & 26 – 8:00 PM

CA01_Umi-GarrettFullUmi Garrett’s amazing playing may well have duplicated the effect felt by European audiences encountering Mozart in his earliest prodigy years,” wrote a reviewer at one of Umi’s recent concerts. What better a work then to welcome Umi back to the WSO than a concerto from the master himself, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Beethoven symphonies are like nine children in one family – all different! You know the stormy Fifth. Experience the sunny Fourth – no less great in its own way. And to open, a stirring drama in music by the greatest opera composer after Rossini, Giuseppe Verdi.

Artists:
Marcelo Lehninger, conductor
Umi Garrett, piano

Works:
Verdi: Overture to La forza del destino
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4
