Symphony Silicon Valley

Symphony Silicon Valley Brahms & Dvořák

Conductor: Daniel Meyer
Soloist: Jon Kimura Parker, piano

Pianist Jon Kimura Parker is famed for his "infectious elan and gargantuan technique." His outsized technique will be on special demand for the first work on the program, a concerto built on a heroic symphonic scale that requires sheer stamina as well as supreme artistry. A masterpiece of musical contrasts, it is also filled with lyrical interludes, including an extended cello solo. Dvořák's symphony follows, inventive but gentler, almost idyllic, and irresistibly tuneful. While he was writing it, Dvořák himself marveled "melodies simply pour out of me."

As Music Director of the Erie Philharmonic, Artistic Director of the Westmoreland Symphony, and a conductor who maintains an active guest conducting schedule in the US and abroad, Daniel Meyer has reinvigorated orchestras with his innovative programs, engaging presence and keen musical intellect.
