Part of FR3 Friday Evening 3
About This Performance
Shadows and night haunt this rich program, from the complex counterpoint and flickering chiaroscuro of Salonen’s Nyx (Greek goddess of the night), through Schumann’s equally mercurial Piano Concerto and Lutosławski’s Surrealist vocal nocturne, to the swirling chromatic winds tossing Dante’s adulterous lovers in Tchaikovsky’s tone poem.
Brilliant young French pianist David Fray in Schumann’s ardently Romantic concerto, which he wrote for his wife, Clara.
Acclaimed Canadian baritone Gerald Finley in Lutosławski’s evocative interpretation of disordered sleep, which Salonen and the LA Phil recorded.
