- Saturday, April 13 7:30 PM Buy Tickets
Described as one of the biggest pianistic talents of the past 25 years, Terrence Wilson traverses the gamut of human emotions in Mozart’s 23rd Piano Concerto. It’s been said that Mozart’s piano concertos lift the listener to a higher level. Experience the journey from elegant serenity to the depths of despair and back up in a romp of light-hearted gaiety.
Gustav Mahler once said, “A symphony must be like the world; it must contain everything.” He tries to accomplish that in one of the most remarkable first symphonies ever composed. The Wichita Symphony brings its largest assembly of musicians of the season to create a palette of orchestral colors and musical imagery, evoking the sounds of nature at dawn to folk tunes, brass fanfares, Klezmer music, and an imagined funeral march by forest creatures. A stormy and violent finale gives way to a spectacular and memorable conclusion that will have you jumping to your feet.
