Pacific Symphony Plays Schubert & Chopin

Carl St.Clair, conductor
Drew Petersen, piano

These 70-minute, informal concerts by Pacific Symphony are perfect for newcomers to and aficionados of the classical music scene. An audience favorite, conductor and music director Carl St.Clair brings his vast knowledge of musical history to life with both his comments and his baton.

Maestro Carl St.Clair explores the beauty and complexity of Schubert and Chopin. While both composers were of a similar era (early-nineteenth century), their styles were in stark contrast to each other.

Twenty-four-year-old American pianist Drew Petersen is the winner of a 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the 2017 American Pianists Awards, and the Christel DeHaan Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and is also Artist-in-Residence at the University of Indianapolis.

Schubert—Symphony No. 5
Chopin—Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor
