Price Range $29 - $65
Duration 1hr 30min / Includes Intermission

Maestro Yaniv Dinur returns to Sarasota for his debut appearance with the Festival Orchestra. Acclaimed pianist Ya-Fei Chuang, a Festival alumna, serves as soloist in Chopin’s gorgeous, early-Romantic Piano Concerto in F Minor, published after his Piano Concerto No. 1 but written first. Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst opens the program with a soundscape of rapidly shifting musical colors. The wit and sparkle of Beethoven's Fourth Symphony might be closer in spirit to Haydn’s Clock than his own Eroica; however, this lesser-performed masterpiece is an effervescent gem whose brilliance is not to be missed.
