Chopin & Swan Lake
Holland Center - Friday, October 18 & Saturday, October 19
Tchaikovsky’s exquisite writing for ballet opens this program, with the drama and transformations so clear through the music that you can practically see the dancers on stage. Charlie Albright (“Among the most gifted musicians of his generation.” – The Washington Post) returns to Omaha for Chopin’s intimate Andante Spiniato and technique tour-de-force Grande Polonaise before Shostakovich’s mischievous, danger-laced Symphony No. 9 romps through the Holland.
