Dvořák New World Symphony
Pianist George Li, winner of the Silver Medal at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, communicates all the fire, tenderness, and sardonic humour of Rachmaninoff’s breathtaking showpiece for piano and orchestra. For his TSO début, Uzbek conductor Aziz Shokhakimov offers the symphony that Czech composer Dvořák created while living in America. This much-loved work offers not only his heartfelt impressions of the bustling USA of the 1890s, but a touching love letter to his far-off homeland. (Pictured: George Li, piano)
