Sameer Patel, conductor
Weiyin Chen, piano
Fantasy and reality intermingle on this February Masterworks program, which features two pivotal works of early romanticism by Schumann and Wagner. Conductor Sameer Patel leads the KSO in a program featuring Wagner’s Overture to The Flying Dutchman, the classic opera that tells the story of a ghost ship destined to forever roam the seas. Pianist Weiyen Chen makes her Knoxville debut with Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25, a piece that displays a heroic quality that influenced a young Beethoven. This program also features contemporary composer Al-Zand’s Visions from Another World, a piece based off of three drawings by the 19th century caricaturist, J.J Grandville.
