Ear JoyThe Perfect Marriage of Piano and Orchestra

All three composers on our April program had a firm grasp on the art of choosing the perfect instruments for the right musical moments. Debussy’s Petite Suite is one of the many French works originally written for piano that take advantage  of the full palette of the orchestra. Chopin’s 2nd Piano Concerto is an example of the beauty that can exist when the solo piano perfectly intertwines with the orchestra. And Franck’s D minor Symphony stands as a richly woven tapestry of emotion and musical ideas.
