Program Notes and Details

At a Glance

German conductor Marc Albrecht makes his Minnesota Orchestra debut in a program that highlights the unpredictable. Jon Kimura Parker, the Minnesota Orchestra’s creative partner for summer programming, performs Dmitri Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto, a sparkling and wildly entertaining work that also features Manny Laureano, the Orchestra’s principal trumpet.

The concert begins with a magical trio for flute, bassoon and harp composed in 1986 by Miguel del Águila, and concludes with Robert Schumann’s stormy Symphony No. 4. Each piece represents something uncharacteristic or unexpected from its composer, showcasing the incredible things that can come when comfort zones are stretched.

Note: Simon Trpčeski, who was originally scheduled to perform as soloist in the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 1, has unfortunately had to withdraw from this concert due to problems with his visa. We are grateful to have Jon Kimura Parker join us for the performance, playing the same repertoire.
