“When you’re named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pressure is on to display a little star power—and the young pianist Orion Weiss did exactly that...an exceptionally clean technique with virtuosity to spare” (The Washington Post). There’s “inspired virtuosity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) in store in this performance of music by Scarlatti and 20th century Spanish composer Enrique Granados.
Event begins at 7:30PM
