About This Program
The brilliant American pianist Jeremy Denk returns to the SPCO to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 as part of a program designed to illuminate the transcendent nature of Mozart’s music. The program opens with Irving Fine’s Serious Song, a richly textured and expressive work for strings alone. George Rochberg’s To the Dark Wood for wind quintet extends the gravity of Fine’s work for strings, preparing for the luminous beauty of Mozart’s sublime concerto.
