Michael TORKE Javelin
GRIEG Piano Concerto
DVORAK Symphony No. 8
Des Moines Civic Center (221 Walnut Street, Des Moines, IA)
Grieg’s brilliant, majestic Piano Concerto is one of the best-loved and most-performed pieces in the piano repertoire. Hear it played to lyrical perfection by Jon Kimura Parker, plus – experience Dvorak’s sublime Eighth Symphony, the bucolic masterpiece written by Iowa’s favorite Czech composer after his summer in Spillville. But first, Michael Torke’s Javelin will thrill you with its shimmering, joyful celebration of the Olympic spirit.
