In his last appearance with The Phoenix Symphony, Ukrainian-born pianist Stanislav Khristenko wowed the Arizona Republic with his “fine pianissimos and thunderous fortissimos.” See this brilliant artist in one of the most popular concertos in the repertoire: Grieg’s ardent Piano Concerto. Plus, Assistant Conductor Matthew Kasper leads The Phoenix Symphony in Dvorák’s Seventh Symphony – music that captures the energy, exuberance, and promise of the composer’s beloved homeland. These concerts also feature the otherworldly sounds of Les Offrandes Oubliées (The Forgotten Offerings), an early work from Debussy disciple Olivier Messiaen.
