Leyendos: An Andean Walkabout (IV. Coquetas)
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
Miko Kominami, piano
RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances, Op. 35
Take a deep breath of fresh air with the compelling music of two living composers! Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout explores the Andes mountains in Peru, mixing elements of classical and Peruvian folk music traditions. Our own principal pianist,?Miko Kominami,?breathes life into Iowa composer Jerry Owen’s piano concerto. Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances inject energy and exciting tone color variation. This program is revitalizing, contemplative, and original.
