In a widely varied program, this chamber orchestra—comprising members of the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo orchestras and their music directors—features some of Mozart’s best-known and least known works as well as an early 100th birthday salute to the important American composer George Perle. The concert opens with Charles Ives’ magnificent The Unanswered Question. Rising vocal star Karina Gauvin sings two Mozart arias, one with an unusual piano obbligato part. The program concludes with Mozart’s beloved Two-Piano Concerto with Lori Sims and Gilbert Kalish as soloists.

Nikolai Lugansky, piano

“Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky has a formidable technique, and when he puts a bit of muscle behind it, he produces the big sound that characterizes the Russian style.”
The New York Times

Already a major artist, Lugansky has been hailed as the “next” in a line of great Russian pianists. Last year, his most recent CD won a Solo Recording of the Year by Echo Klassik. He brings one of the most exciting programs of the Festival to Dalton Center Recital Hall, performing Rachmaninoff’s Thirteen Preludes as well as the Prokofiev Fourth Sonata.

Gilmore Family Concerts: Anderson & Roe Piano Duo 

Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe seek to meld two seemingly different styles of music—classical music that can sound like pop and pop music that sounds classical. This presentation features performances from the Duo’s eclectic repertoire and a discussion on musical inspiration, personal taste, and the fads of musical terminology—classical to pop to crossover and fusion.

There are six performances of this special Gilmore Family Concert April 21–28. See thegilmore.org for locations, dates, and times.
