This is one of the most beloved, most passionate Piano Concertos in the entire repertoire. The brilliant Louis Lortie, noted by The New York Times for his “splendid technique and thoughtful soul,” plays Greig’s immortal concerto. Teddy Abrams, at the forefront of America’s new generation of conductors leads Stravinsky’s colorful Petrushka, and an overture of his own.
