Lose yourself in the magical world of 1,001 Nights when Music Director Gustavo Gimeno leads Rimsky-Korsakov’s bewitching Scheherazade—one of classical music’s most dramatic, exciting, and popular works! Spotlighting the prodigious talents of Canadian pianist Bruce Liu, who became the first Canadian to win the prestigious Chopin International Piano Competition in 2021, Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 bespeaks its young composer’s innermost thoughts and desires: unable to express his love for Konstancja Gladkowska in words, he poured it into this tender and exquisite music. Myth becomes music in Lera Auerbach’s scintillating Icarus, and Kevin Lau’s world première Celebration Prelude opens the performances in a joyful, festive fashion.
