Program

Michael Torke: Javelin
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1
Sergei Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances


Lawrence Loh, conductor
Jon Nakamatsu, piano

Jon Nakamatsu is a true aristocrat of the keyboard, whose playing combines elegance, clarity and electrifying power. Of his 2014 solo disc of the piano works of Robert Schumann, BBC Music Magazine said “Nakamatsu clarifies Schumann’s mid-range saturated textures to a remarkable degree, reveling in its fantastic imaginings with rapier-like precision and effortless command.”
