Why You'll Love This Concert
The Redlands Symphony’s exciting 2012–2013 season begins with the exceptional Anastasiya Timofeeva performing Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto, a tour-de-force work of striking power and memorable lyricism. Paired with Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, this opening evening is sure to amaze and inspire.

Although the young Tchaikovsky began music lessons at the age of five and progressed to improvising at the piano by fourteen, none of his teachers detected what was apparently a natural ability to compose. Thus, he was never encouraged to progress beyond the level expected of any average child from a middle-class family.Read More

As a child, Béla Bartók showed definite signs of becoming a piano prodigy and was encouraged by his parents to follow the path of a performer rather than of a composer.
