Orchestra of St. Luke’s: Piano Quintets with Hamelin, at Merkin Hall
Tuesday February 28, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$30 – $40
Orchestra of St. Luke’s with Marc-André Hamelin, piano
FLORENCE PRICE – Piano Quintet in A Minor
JOHANNES BRAHMS – Piano Quintet in F Minor, Op. 34
Celebrated Canadian-American pianist Marc-André Hamelin joins OSL for this program dedicated to the expressive powers of the piano quintet. The first Black female composer to have her music performed by a major American orchestra, Florence Price was a prolific and innovative American artist whose accomplishments have been unjustly ignored for decades. On this program, OSL continues its commitment to championing Price’s music by presenting her evocative and masterful Piano Quintet in A minor alongside Brahms’ Piano Quintet, considered by many to be one of the best examples of the piano quintet.
