what’s on tap?

this saturday, sunday (mother’s day matinee!), and monday, the oregon symphony brings home its penultimate concert with a matching set of operatic interludes by benny britten, the last symphony written by finnish phenom jean sibelius, the massive piano concerto #1 by tchaikovsky, and a capricious joke delivered by antonín dvořák.

why go?  well, if you’ve been wanting to get to the symphony before the 2011/12 season is kaput, this show’s got it all: four wide-ranging works by four brilliant composers (all 30 minutes or under!), coach kalmar on the podium, microphones recording a future album, and pianist arnaldo cohen – the final international guest soloist to sit in with the band this season.

do yourself (and a loved one) a favor and grab some tix if you haven’t already.  call the symphony’s box office at (503) 228-1353 or click on *their website to get ‘er done.

[two years ago after the Beethoven festival, mr. cohen played *this tango for an encore… it also happens to be the perfect accompaniment for a sunny friday.  enjoy!]
