Courtney Lewis, Music Director
Zhang Zuo, Pianist
An intensely dramatic program, beginning with Schumann’s passionate Manfred Overture followed by the intensely passionate Chinese pianist Zhang Zuo playing the most famous of all piano concertos. And after intermission the nail-biting intensity of Nielsen’s incredible Fourth Symphony. This program just doesn’t let up!
