Monday, April 14, 2014
at Gusman Concert Hall
1320 Miller Drive
The Frost Symphony Orchestra explores three highly dramatic works under the charismatic leadership of guest conductor, James Judd (Miami Music Project). The orchestra opens with Verdi’s ever-popular Overture to Nabucco, then welcomes to the stage piano soloist Ana Cristea, a winner in the Frost School’s annual student concerto competition, as she performs Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30. The concert concludes with Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Symphony No. 5, subtitled Concerto for Orchestra, that showcases the composer’s considerable flair for orchestration.
