BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto
2:30 p.m.
Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

Thom Pain (based on nothing)
2:00 pm
A moving solo show and Pulitzer Prize Finalist He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life—in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row. Thom Pain (based on nothing) is one man's attempt to mythologize the loss of innocence we all experience when we shift, sometimes in a single moment, from child to adult.
