We begin our season with the beautiful music of Rachmaninoff's Vocalise, Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Suite and Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2, featuring guest pianist Andrew Staupe.
American pianist Andrew Staupe is emerging as one of the distinctive voices of a new generation of pianists. In 2012 Andrew made his Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim, in which New York Concert Review raved "Staupe gave a brilliant performance, handling the virtuosic demands with apparent ease... I was stunned _ this was one of the most incredible performances... A once in a lifetime performance!"
