GRIEG PIANO CONCERTO
Saturday, July 15 – 7:30 PM | Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium
Danish composer Carl Nielsen described his Fifth Symphony as “the division of dark and light, the battle between evil and good, and the opposition between ‘Dreams and Deeds’. Powerful, genuine, and beautiful, Nielsen’s symphony was largely unrecognized outside of Denmark until Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic recorded a seminal account of the work in 1962. Grieg’s Piano Concerto, on the other hand, quickly became one of his most famous works and was performed by the leading pianists of the day. It was so popular, in fact, that it was the first piano concerto ever recorded. Maestro Rune Bergmann returns to Brevard in this performance with the BMCO.
