Location: FLATO Markham Theatre

Two ostentatious works for the piano by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt lead the evening’s concert featuring prize-winning pianist Ricker Choi. Liszt’s demonic dance of death, Totentanz, conjures the Day of Wrath, while his Piano Concerto No. 2 displays theatrical feats of extravagance at the keyboard. Illuminating audiences is harpist Teresa Suen-Campbell, who performs a world premiere by the celebrated Chinese composer Chan Wing-Wah. The beautifully orchestrated Symphony No. 3 “Polish” by Tchaikovsky is sure to please the ears in its unconventional five-movement format.
