Jon Nakamatsu, piano Torke: Javelin
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 3
Dvořák: Symphony No. 7
An exciting mix of some of the most powerful works of the Romantic period with a celebratory opener from one of America’s most innovative composers: Javelin (composed for the 1996 Olympics) is post-minimalist Michael Torke’s best known work; 1997 Van Cliburn Gold Medalist Jon Nakamatsu makes his TSO debut performing Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, considered a pianistic feat. A love of trains and the romance of train travel inspired Dvorřˇák’s seventh symphony.
