Berkeley Symphony and acclaimed Bay Area pianist Sarah Cahill give a rare performance of Lou Harrison's Piano Concerto. Written for jazz pianist Keith Jarrett in 1983, this gorgeous work promises to pique your imagination with sounds evoking the Indonesian gamelan and medieval melodies. Also on the evening's program is Sibelius's Symphony No. 5, which premiered in 1915 to mark the composer's 50th birthday. This jubilant work is paired with Chinese composer Lei Liang's tender and refreshing piece Verge for strings. Guest conductor Jayce Ogren leads the orchestra on this night filled with music of commemoration!
