Sir Stephen Hough plays Grieg

Sun Valley Pavilion 300 Dollar Rd, Sun Valley, Idaho, United States

Edvard Grieg wrote his Piano Concerto in A minor at the young age of 24, and it’s no wonder it’s his only one–it’s about as close to perfection as a concerto can get. From the thunderous opening, to the many lyrical melodies in the first movement, the heartbreakingly beautiful second movement, and the joyful and thrilling third, it’s a tour de force from start to finish. The program opens with Gabriela Ortiz’s Antrópolis, a piece inspired by the music of Mexico’s nightlife, rich with rhythms and melodies from bars, nightclubs, and dance halls.
