Described by the New York Times as “elegant and incisive,” Gabriela Martinez returns to the Chamber Orchestra to open the 55th season under the direction of Maestro Dirk Brossé.
Martinez’s refined playing of one of Mozart’s most technically demanding piano works is accompanied by the unmistakable voices of Haydn and Schubert for a thrilling tour of Viennese Classicism. Complementing these classical treasures is an orchestral arrangement of Michael Nyman’s hauntingly beautiful score to Jane Campion’s Academy Award winning film, The Piano.
