In the classical concerto repertoire, there are countless masterworks and memorable melodies. However, there may be no other concerto whose opening notes are as recognizable as that of Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto. From its powerful opening, you know you are about to embark on a memorable journey through one of the most iconic piano concertos of all time.
Our guest soloist for the season opener at Kahilu Theatre is the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning pianist Thomas Yee (Honolulu), whose musicality and prowess will be on full display with Tchaikovsky’s concerto.
Dr. Yee is the Professor of Music at the University of Hawai‘i Manoa, and also teaches a wide range of young up and coming pianists on O‘ahu. He is a strong supporter of KPO’s Madeline Schatz-Harris Youth Concerto Competition.
Also included in the Yee & Tchaikovsky program is the Sibelius Symphony No. 2. Bold and powerful are two words that come to mind when you hear the music. In a time of lush, romanticized writing, Sibelius begins this amazing work with bits and pieces and combines them in magical ways that take us on an astounding aural journey that culminates in one of the most majestic and soaring finales ever written.
