Kansas City Symphony presents Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” with Barber’s Piano Concerto
March 8 @ 8:00 PM CST
Rossini’s William Tell Overture gallops out of the gate in this energetic concert, followed by pianist Alessio Bax, who returns to perform Barber’s technically demanding Piano Concerto. Mendelssohn’s boyhood trip to Scotland inspired his Symphony No. 3, “Scottish.” Esteemed conductor Edo de Waart leads us through Mendelssohn’s lilting score with its impressions of ancient palace ruins, an old bagpipe melody and lively Scottish dances.
