Gold Medal winner Ryo Yanagitani will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 at the next of Symphony of the Hills on Thursday, Feb 27, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cailloux Theater, 910 Main, Kerrville, Texas. The event will be preceded by a wine reception in the lobby at 6:30 p.m.

The concert’s theme is Chopin and Friends: Romantic Genius, according to Dr. Eugene Dowdy, Conductor and Artistic Director.

“Most of us know about Chopin’s virtuosic piano performance and compositional skills,” Dowdy said. “But Chopin was also highly influenced by the music of J.S. Bach, and had close associations with Hector Berlioz and Franz Liszt. The orchestra will pay homage to those influences. This will be a powerful and captivating concert.”

This concert features Ryo Yanagitani. The Canadian artist is the Gold Medal Winner of the 10th San Antonio International Piano Competition, and was given special recognition for his performance of Chopin.

The program:

Roman Carnival Overture, Hector Berlioz

“Little Fugue” in G Minor, J.S. Bach

Festive March for Goethe Centenary, Franz Liszt

Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor, Frédéric Chopin

Ryo Yanagitani, piano
