San Jose’s own Cliburn gold medal winner Jon Nakamatsu joins this season of stars to reprise the first work he ever played with Symphony San Jose: Grieg’s Piano Concerto. (A critic once noted that the work “brought smile after smile to Nakamatsu’s face.”)
The program ends with Florence Price’s pioneering Symphony No. 1, skillfully incorporating spirituals, folk songs and syncopated African American dance rhythms into a classical structure.
- David Amram: Jhaptal
- Edvard Grieg: Piano Concerto
