Amarillo Symphonty – Florence Price Piano Concerto
September 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The brilliant Awadagin Pratt joins Maestro Bairos and the orchestra to perform Price’s attractive Piano Concerto in One Movement. The orchestra also performs an Amarillo Symphony premiere of Shostakovich’s epic Tenth Symphony, a serious and uncompromising work of climaxes, marches, and towering brass. This symphony conveys an unconquerable spirit in the face of oppression, and it remains Shostakovich’s most cohesive work. A perfect concert to start the fall series at the Globe-News Center.
Jacomo Bairos, conductor
Awadagin Pratt, guest soloist
