Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Concert: Pictures Perfect

Jan 19, 2013 January 19, 2013, 8:00 p.m.

Ruby Diamond Concert Hall
Matthew Kraemer, Conductor
Read Gainsford, Piano

Kabalevsky: Overture to Colas Breugnon, Op. 24
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4
Mussorgsky/Ravel: Pictures at an Exhibition Matthew Kraemer will conduct the TSO in this blockbuster evening of favorites. Beethoven's beloved 4th Piano Concerto was the last the composer—because of his advancing deafness—was able to debut himself. Its intimacy and lyricism are the perfect foil to Mussorgsky's vivid depiction of a stroll through an exhibition of artwork by his recently deceased friend, Viktor Hartmann. Mussorgsky's "Pictures" is a virtual tour de force of orchestral color and the perfect compliment to Tallahassee's chromatic January days. Pictures Perfect is generously sponsored by Champion Chevrolet/University Cadillac Buick GMC.
