Weber, Chopin, Mendelssohn

Thursday, February 22, 2018

French pianist David Fray's Symphony Center recital last spring was called “musical poetry” by the Chicago Tribune. He returns to perform Chopin's tenderly lyrical Second Piano Concerto. Christoph Eschenbach, music director of the National Symphony Orchestra, rounds out a richly romantic program with Carl Maria von Weber's noble overture to his opera Der Freischütz and two of Mendelssohn's most beloved masterpieces.

Program

Weber Overture to Der Freischütz
Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2
Mendelssohn Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream
Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4 (Italian)
