Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

 Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra welcomes pianist Sara Davis Buechner and conductor Maximiano Valdés back to the Islands for a program of Gershwin, Beethoven and Ravel on Saturday, April 26, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 4 p.m. at the Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall. This will be the third program in the HSO’s Spring 2014 Halekulani Masterworks Series.

Buechner, who may well hold the world title for having the most piano concertos in her repertoire (more than 100!) and is noted for her interpretations of American and jazz-influenced works, will perform George Gershwin’s Concerto in F. More of a traditional, although jazzy, piano concerto than his earlier Rhapsody in Blue, which was actually orchestrated by fellow composer Ferde Grofé, the Concerto in F showcases Gershwin’s own mastery of orchestration.
