Two Strauss masterpieces demonstrating the artistry of the symphony orchestra frame two contemporary works for piano and orchestra. Emanuele Arciuli, winner of Italy’s coveted Abbiati Prize, returns to the SDSO to perform two important new American expressions: the U.S. premiere of Luminary by Thai-American composer Narong Prangcharoen and the jazz-inflected Ballad Nocturne by Ann Millikan.

Strauss                                  Don Juan, Op. 20

Prangcharoen                      Luminary Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (U.S. Premiere)
Emanuele Arciuli, piano

Millikan                                Ballad Nocturne (U.S. Premiere)
Emanuele Arciuli, piano

Strauss                                  Suite from Der Rosenkavalier, Op. 59

The commission of Luminary was underwritten by James Lerner Ansin in honor of his uncle Bennett Lerner.
