Hear Kayleen Asbo speak about this program: 

Music Director Candidate Mei-Ann Chen conducts a symphonic journey spanning 160 years, which includes Mendelssohn's exuberant Italian Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 1, featuring the wildly imaginative Nareh Arghamanyan and Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, a joyful time capsule of the October Revolution. Higdon’s blue cathedral contrasts the older works with a touching, personal tribute to the composer's sibling, which contemplates the subject of life itself.
“Elegance, humor, deliciously burbling trills and fiery imagination… Pianists don’t come any better, another potential superstar has arrived.”  
-American Record Guide
