Paavo's Back in Town!

French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard

Yes, he is and ready to conduct the Cincinnati Symphony in two performances this week in beautiful Music Hall. The first is a lucky Friday the 13th morning concert at 11 am; the second takes place Saturday night, January 14, at 8 pm.

This week's program: Britten's Four Sea Interludes from the opera Peter Grimes; Ravel's Piano Concerto for Left Hand in D Major with guest artist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, piano; and Hindemith's Mathis der Maler.

Read the Program Notes before you go and you'll have more time to stargaze! This program will air via streaming audio on classical WGUC, 90.9 FM, on Sunday, February 19, at 7:30 pm.

Saturday night is also College Nite this week with jazz by the John Zappa Quartet (Yes. You heard me right. I said "Zappa"). Students can always get $10 tickets to CSO concerts, but on College Nites $10 buys the concert AND a party after the concert, where students enjoy free appetizers, cash bar, music by a live local band, great prizes, mingling with CSO musicians, meeting Music Director Paavo Järvi and meeting other college students. Call (513)744-3590 to get on the College Nite e-mail list or to order advance tickets.
