Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

My audio program notes for the centerpiece of this weekend's Colorado Springs Philharmonic program are available here. (It's an 11 megabyte mp3 file, and lasts about 12-and-a-half minutes.) This format allows a level of detail that isn't possible without musical examples.

I hope to do something like this for future concerts. Other commentaries probably won't be this large - but I particularly love this concerto.

Meanwhile, I'm eagerly awaiting this performance. Pianist Norman Krieger received the first rave review I ever wrote, for his 1993 performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3.

Performances are 8 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. More info available at the philharmonic website.
