The Program

A pianist and composer praised by the New York Times for his “streamlined but powerful technique and. . . vivid imagination,” Michael Brown joins the Maryland Symphony Orchestra to pay tribute to two other pianist-composers: Beethoven and Shostakovich. A world premiere from Brown himself, written especially for this orchestra, concludes the evening.

  • Beethoven—Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major: Echoes of Haydn and Mozart can be found in this early Beethoven work, but his own personality shines through as the piano builds elaborate terraces atop the orchestra’s lush foundation.
  • Shostakovich—Symphony No. 1 in D Major: Written when the composer was just 19 years old, the piece opens with a sprightly duet between trumpet and bassoon that gives way to a more somber mood in the second movement.
  • Brown—Concerto for Piano and Orchestra: Juilliard graduate Michael Brown has been awarded multiple honors for his piano skills, and received acclaim from the New York Times for his “darkly alluring” compositions as well.

Maryland Symphony Orchestra

From classical masterpieces to newly-composed commissions to free-wheeling pops concerts, Maryland Symphony Orchestra ensures its seasons contain something for everyone. Special performances are staged especially with children and youth in mind, and an annual patriotic concert celebrates American history with an extra star-spangly program at the Antietam National Battlefield. The skilled musicians are guided by the baton of award-winning musical director Elizabeth Schulze.
