Many Contrasts

Bronspiegel Auditorium, New Bedford High School

Saturday, April 13, 7:30 PM

Yaniv Dinur, conductor
Katherine Chi, piano

Brian Raphael Nabors: Pulse for Orchestra
Sergei Prokofiev: Suite from The Love for Three Oranges
Johannes Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2

It should not come as a surprise by now that Yaniv likes to provide our audiences with memorable listening experiences. In this concert, he offers us many contrasts – in other words, three pieces of music that couldn’t be more different from one another!  We begin with an upbeat rhythmic jaunt in Pulse for Orchestra by American composer Brian Raphael Nabors. Then we switch to the witty and even prickly music of Prokofiev’s delicious The Love for Three Oranges. Finally, we have one more switch, to the massive, overpowering sound of Brahms, whose second piano concerto is often called a “symphony with piano.” Pianist Katherine Chi, whom critics describe as “compelling, cogent, sensational,” returns for her second engagement with the NBSO.
