On Saturday in Naperville, IL, and next Monday at Symphony Center in downtown Chicago, the Sinfonietta Orchestra will launch their new season of concerts, beginning with a piano-centric program called Unhinged. Edward Kelsey Moore and his cello will be among the orchestra members!
Here’s more info on the concerts:
2 pianos, 3 soloists, 6 hands... who could ask for anything more? A mad dash of 30 fingers over 176 keys, a tidal wave of notes! What kind of unhinged musical madness allows the music of Stravinsky, Gershwin, Poulenc, Michael Jackson and Coldplay to coexist in the same concert? Anderson and Roe, called “the most dynamic piano duo of this generation,” award-winning piano prodigy Clayton Stephenson, and the Chicago Sinfonietta will provide the answers in this star-studded, piano-centric program which will push the instrument to the absolute limit!
