STATE OF AWE: Coleridge-Taylor’s Ballade in A minor was the composer’s musical debut and earned him the designation of “genius.” Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 has the composer’s musical poetry and stimulating themes on full display.  You’ll be astounded by Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3, which will be performed by Solomon Ge, the winner of the 2021 Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition. This work of passionate expression flies from the keyboard surrounded by blazing symphonic orchestration – as if Prokofiev himself were with us in the concert hall sitting at his piano.
