March 6, 2021 • HAYDN, WALKER, & BEETHOVEN FEATURING YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETITION WINNER
Haydn: Symphony No. 88 in G Major
Walker: Lyric for Strings
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major, Op. 15
Solomon Ge, piano
One of the most characteristic and popular of Haydn’s symphonies, No.88 excels with innovation and musical sleight-of-hand, ingenious even for history’s most illustrious musical trickster. Lyric for Strings demonstrates American composer and Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker’s gift for beautifully crafted melodic writing. Solomon Ge, winner of the Ann & Charles Eisemann International Young Artists Competition, performs Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major.
