Acclaimed Russian pianist Nikolai Demidenko returns in Schumann’s Piano Concerto, one of the most lyrical of all piano concertos. The first half of the concert couples Richard Strauss’ youthful Serenade for 13 Winds – a work filled with lyrical, melodic themes that foreshadow Strauss’ eminence as a composer of vocal music – with Schoenberg’s most seductive creation Verklärte Nacht ('Transfigured Night'), a work inspired by his feelings for his future wife Mathilde von Zemlinsky.
