Simone Dinnerstein Returns
April 7 @ 8pm
Daniel Meyer conductor
Simone Dinnerstein piano
Prokofiev Symphony No. 1, "Classical"
J.S. Bach Piano Concerto No. 7
Glass Piano Concerto (world-premiere co-commission)
Ravel Daphnis and Chloé Suites 1 & 2
We will open our season finale concert with Sergei Prokofiev’s witty and spirited romp through the 18th century (refracted through decidedly 20th Century lenses) in his Classical Symphony. Then Erie favorite Simone Dinnerstein returns to perform one of her specialties – the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Simone will pair one of his lively keyboard concertos with a brand new work, co-commissioned by the Erie Philharmonic, by American icon Philip Glass. Designed for the same orchestral forces as the Bach, Glass’ new Concerto for Piano and Orchestra is destined to become an important contribution to the genre. Our evening and 17-18 season comes to a stunning close with Ravel’s music from his ballet Daphnis et Chloé. In two suites extracted from the full ballet, Ravel chose the most sumptuous and sensuous music from his iconic ballet to feature the sheer power and sweep of an orchestra in full bloom.
