($15, free with subscription)
Pre-concert talk: 7:30 p.m.
György Ligeti’s influence on contemporary composers is vast, and his Piano Concerto demonstrates why. Full of rollicking polyrhythms, vivid orchestral color, and a playful sense of humor, the Piano Concerto is one Ligeti’s greatest and most appealing creations. Pianist Yumi Suehiro will be featured with Ensemble Mise-En in a program that will also include Hans Abrahamsen’s Märchenbilder and Crimson Dawn by distinguished New College alum Jason Rosenberg.
