Description

Award-winning pianist Adam Golka has appeared in some of the most important venues and with some of the greatest orchestras in the world. Join us as Adam returns to Riverside and appears alongside his brother, Philharmonic Music Director Tomasz Golka, as soloist in Tchaikovsky's beloved Piano Concerto No. 1 (which was performed for the first time in 1875 in Boston). The Philharmonic will also present Sergei Rachmaninoff's powerful Symphony No. 3, one of the very few works the composer wrote late in life while living in the United States, and one-time "local" composer Arnold Schoenberg's unique, colorful, and imaginative Accompaniment to a cinematographic scene. With his "brilliant technique and real emotional depth" (The Washington Post), pianist Adam Golka has won widespread critical and popular acclaim in his relatively short time on the national scene. He has garnered international prizes including the 2008 Gilmore Young Artist Award, first prize in the 2nd China Shanghai International Piano Competition in 2003 and the 2009 Max I. Allen Classical Fellowship Award of the American Pianists Association. Cost: Varies
