Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto Gets New Orchestration for Strings

James Dick has a good relationship with the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin and conductor Mischa Rachlevsky; in fact they have performed together previously in Texas, as well as in Moscow.

"They're the finest players in Russia, either in the conservatory or playing professionally," says soloist James Dick. "It is a pleasure to work with them. I can also guarantee you haven't heard Beethoven like this before, a new orchestration that has written the wind parts out for the strings and piano. It is breathtaking!"

The program is Sunday, October 14 at 3:15 p.m. at Temple Beth El. This particular San Antonio Chamber Music Society performance is quite romantic, and besides the Beethoven includes works by Schubert, Brahms and Tchaikovsky.

There will also be another performance in Round Top, Texas on Saturday, October 20 at 3 p.m..
