Overview

Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Jan Lisiecki - Piano

PROGRAM
Haydn - Overture to L'isola disabitata
Mendelssohn - Piano Concerto No. 1
INTERMISSION -
Schubert - Symphony in C major ("Great")

A piano prodigy returns! Jan Lisiecki may be young, but he's already a seasoned master at the keyboard (and a regular with the Orchestra—he made his debut at age 18). He'll shine in Mendelssohn's innovative Piano Concerto No. 1. Yannick also brings us Haydn's stirring Overture to the opera L'isola disabitata, part of his focus on that composer's music, as well as Schubert's Symphony in C major, his final completed symphony, and absolutely deserving of its less formal title: the “Great.”

The March 7 concert is sponsored by the Hassel Foundation.
