Tobias Picker – Opera Without Words Live
Beethoven – Piano Concerto No. 3
- Internationally recognized as one of today’s most acclaimed and admired
pianists, GRAMMY winner Yefim
Bronfman has performed around the world with all the major orchestras. He’ll
return to Nashville to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
- Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 shows the influence of Mozart while
also revealing Beethoven’s truly unique and original voice as a composer
- History in the Making – The
Nashville Symphony will record Tobias
Picker’s Opera Without Words for future release. Picker has been
called “a genuine creator” by The New Yorker, and BBC Music
Magazine hailed his “distinctively soulful style.”
- Opera Without Words is just that — Picker structured this piece
like an opera, but didn’t write any text, so that the musicians are the storytellers
in this wonderfully dramatic piece.
Tobias Picker’s Opera Without Words was co-commissioned
by the National Symphony Orchestra, through a grant from the John and June Hechinger
Commissioning Fund for New Orchestral Works, and by the Nashville Symphony.
