Piano Concerto in D flat major, Opus 38by Aram Khachaturian will feature the return of pianist Kariné Poghosyan. “This is Kariné’s third appearance with the Newburgh Symphony, and she wins the admiration of more people with every visit,” said Shacklett, “Khachturian’s Piano Concerto is exactly the kind of work that allows Kariné to display her virtuosity’s full range – from a ‘tender whisper’ to a heart-stopping roar.”
The drama concludes with Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, Opus 100 by Sergei Prokofiev. Gordon Shacklett summed up this work with Prokofiev’s own words, “He said of his Fifth,‘I wanted to sing the praises of the free and happy human being—of such a person’s strength, generosity and purity of soul.’ This is a dramatically uplifting ending to the evening.”
The concert will be presented Saturday, November 22 at Mount Saint Mary College’s Aquinas Hall, at 7:30 pm (Arrive at 6:30 pm to hear Gordon Shacklett’s fascinating concert preview!). Tickets -- Reserved: $30, General: $24, Senior Citizens: $18, Students: admitted free) can be purchased online or at the door.
