Ives A Symphony: New England Holidays
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

Brahms dedicated his Second Piano Concerto to his piano teacher, which might explain the virtuosic talent needed to perform this dramatic and expansive tour de force. Enter the marvelous Garrick Ohlsson, who has been wowing Philadelphia audiences with his playing for over 50 years. Charles Ives’s New England Holidays, a radical-for-its-time look at Americana, is led by the acclaimed Michael Tilson Thomas.
