Khachaturian & Brahms. Performance with Silicon Valley Orchestra
December 7, 2019
8:00 pm

Celebrated throughout Europe, Maestro Pietro Rizzo comes from Italy to make his first appearance with SSV. Armenian-born pianist Nareh Arghamanyan, described by Musical America Magazine as a “major, major, major talent,” is especially renowned for Khachaturian’s fiery, expressive piano concerto, based in part on Armenian folk music. Brahms’s second (and favorite) symphony provides a dramatic contrast to close: a warm, richly textured, serenely happy work by the German master.

Conductor: Pietro Rizzo

Soloist(s): Nareh Arghamanyan

Glinka: Ruslan and Ludmilla Overture

Khachaturian: Piano Concerto

Brahms: Symphony No. 2
