Sat. Nov. 7 - 8pm 90.5 FM | Live from the Michigan Theater, the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra presents live Mendelssohn 'Italian' with Roman Rabinovich.
This special broadcast is available exclusively over-the-air on 90.5 (no online streaming).
Celebrate Sibelius' 150th Birthday with the Karelia Suite, a tone poem rich with folk melodies and fond memories of his favorite region of Finland. You'll hear why soloist Roman Rabinovich won the prestigious Rubinstein Piano Competition with this very Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3, one of the best-known piano concertos of the 20th century. The concert concludes with what Maestro Arie Lipsky calls "the Perfect Symphony," Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony No. 4, where every shining note is brilliant and right.
