Benjamin Hochman returns to the OPO stage for Brahms’s First Piano Concerto, technically brilliant and unabashedly romantic (with a not-so-subtle declaration of love to Clara Schumann in its glowing Adagio). A silvery flight of swans inspired Sibelius’s glorious Fifth Symphony, while his fierce, stirring Finlandia, with its hymn-like outcry for freedom, is often called Finland’s unofficial national anthem. Waltzes by Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor raise the curtain.
For OPO concerts at Calvary Orlando: COVID testing or vaccination for audience members is encouraged but not required. No proof of testing or vaccination will be required for admission. Face coverings will continue to be required to be worn at all times for concerts at Calvary.
