Jon Kimura Parker Plays Mozart

MARTIN
Concerto for Seven Winds, Timpani, Percussion, and String Orchestra

MOZART
Piano Concerto No. 21

BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 5

HONEGGER
Symphony No. 2

Piano virtuoso Jon Kimura Parker plays Mozart’s hauntingly beautiful Piano Concerto No. 21, then makes an amazing gear-switch to sit down at the harpsichord with a chamber ensemble for Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.

The program also shines a spotlight on the astonishing range and virtuosity of soloists within the Orchestra. Capping the cast is Gilbert Varga, one of the Orchestra’s favorite guest conductors. This fiery British-Hungarian has his own surprises up his sleeve, including Martin’s brilliant Concerto, and Honegger’s Second, marked by the tragedies of war but ending in triumph.
