PROGRAM 

JESSIE MONTGOMERY: Shift, Change, Turn, and Variations (World Premiere, commissioned by Orpheus) 

MENDELSSOHN: Piano Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Op. 40 
Jan Lisiecki, piano

MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90 (“Italian”)

Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony glitters with urban inspiration, from the brilliant sunshine of Rome to the religious pageantry of Naples. The passionate Piano Concerto No. 2, written for a festival in Birmingham, energized Mendelssohn’s ardent fans in England’s second city. This suave showpiece spotlights the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki, fresh off a recording and tour of European hotspots with Orpheus. Augmenting this musical cityscape, a world premiere from local composer Jessie Montgomery taps into the rhythms of modern life.
