About The Event

Enjoy a night filled with drama and emotion with this dual program,  balancing tradition and renewal. First, pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre  and the Ensemble Classico-Moderne deliver a spectacular rendition of one  of the most popular piano concerto ever written, Rachmaninoff’s 2nd.

The night continues with excerpts from Jaap Nico Hamburger’s ARIELLA,  a powerful opera inspired by the novels of Ariella Kornmehl and a  libretto by Thomas Beijer. This touching story follows a traditional  family, whose world is forever changed upon the death of the family  matriarch. As the story unfolds, we witness the heartbreaking reality of  love and loss. The daughter, Ariella, is forced to overcome grief.  Through her unwavering determination to find purpose, she discovers the  courage to embrace her own maturity.
