Two of Johannes Brahms masterworks will be on the program Saturday, Oct. 13 during the New Philharmonic's inaugural performance of the 2012-2013 season at Dominican University.
Led by its music director Kirk Muspratt, the NP will perform a program called "Brahms - Blissful and Bold," at 8 p.m. at the Lund Auditorium at Dominican University Performing Arts Center, 7900 W. Division St., River Forest.
The highlight will be a performance of Brahm's Second Piano Concerto featuring Yeol Eum Son as soloist. A silver medalist at the International Van Cliburn Piano Competition in 2009, Son made her debut with the NP in March, peforming another Romantic period masterpiece, Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor.
Son, who won second prize at the 14th International Tchaikovsky Competition, was been lauded as “a brilliant pianist who plays with a ravishing sound and formidable technique” by the Telegram & Gazette. The 26-year-old continues to build international recognition with acclaimed performances across North America, Europe and Asia.
The concert also will feature Brahms Symphony #4 in E-minor, Op. 98.
