Mendelssohn and Grieg @ Charleston Gaillard Center

World-famous tenor Rodrick Dixon returns to Charleston to perform with the CSO, singing Benjamin Britten’s Saint Nicolas. Additionally, pianist Jihye Chang performs Felix Mendelssohn’s delightful Piano Concerto No. 1. Unlike many other young prodigies of his era, Mendelssohn’s parents did not try to capitalize on his talent, instead giving him the opportunity to experiment on his own. As a result, Mendelssohn began composing at age 12, published his first symphony at 15, and wrote his Piano Concerto No. 1, now a cornerstone of his repertoire, at age 22 while traveling through Italy.

Repertoire:
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Holberg Suite

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
Piano Concerto No. 1

Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
Saint Nicolas
