New West Symphony Presents: Indescribable Beauty
First Prize Winner at the 2010 Chopin Piano Competition, Yulianna Avdeeva makes her New West Symphony debut with performances of Frédéric Chopin’s 2nd Piano Concerto. Chopin composed both of his piano concertos as calling cards for his move from his native Poland to Paris, meant solely to show off his virtuosity at the keyboard. Robert Schumann’s 4th Symphony is overflowing with German romanticism with great sweeps of melodic invention and pulsing rhythms. Schumann structured the four movements of the Symphony to be played without pause, linking them in a continuous whole.
