About the Program

This is a concert of music by outsiders written in three centuries and representing three cultures all sharing a common theme of showcasing the limitless possibilities of music. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 was composed amid a period of personal anguish and traces a journey from despair to hope. George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F, written when he was just a young Jewish-American songwriter, is his first full-scale piano concerto that is influenced by jazz but rooted in the classical tradition.  Korean-born composer HyeKyung Lee engages with the aspirations of the future-you, seeking something higher in Climbing Tomorrow.

Concert Highlights

  • Guest conductor David Zinman leads the orchestra.
  • Guest pianist Misha Dichter performs Gershwin's Concerto in F.
  • HyeKyung Lee's Climbing Tomorrow premiered in 2018 at the Eastern Music Festival and was conducted by Palm Beach Symphony Music Director Gerard Schwarz. It will be the first performance of this piece in Florida.
