Tchaikovsky's First Concerto

with the Richmond Symphony

About the Event

“Worthless” declared the composers friends. “Impossible to play”. But Tchaikovsky refused to change a note of what became historys most popular piano concerto. Ukrainian pianist Dinara Klinton plays Tchaikovsky’s First Concerto. “She is a real virtuoso,” declares legendary pianist András Schiff. “A born pianist, a very natural player.” Plus, Valentina Peleggi conducts Ravel’s seductive suite from Daphnis et Chloé, featuring the Richmond Symphony Chorus who also performs a new work by Richmond’s own Zachary Wadsworth. The Washington Post has acclaimed his music as “fresh, deeply felt and strikingly original.’
