  • About

    Winner of the first Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Ralph Votapek returns to the Symphony stage to perform Prokofiev’s fiendishly difficult Piano Concerto No. 2, a grand romantic statement tempering bombastic grandiosity with pervasive lyricism. A rare treat, Mussorgsky’s dreadfully haunting tone poem, Night on Bald Mountain, is presented in its original form, without Rimsky-Korsakov’s more hopeful reconstruction. Tchaikovsky’s obsession with Fate reverberates throughout his well-loved Symphony No. 5 as moments of balletic grace alternate with shocking climaxes.
