Evanston Symphony: Blockbusters of 1830

The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, presents Blockbusters of 1830.

Soloist Kate Liu returns to the Evanston Symphony to celebrate Chopin’s birthday in his glittering First Piano Concerto. This is the concerto for which Kate won third prize in last year’s International Chopin Competition, the first American to win a prize there since 1970.

The Symphonie fantastique of Hector Berlioz is among the most revolutionary orchestral advances in music history, and its 1830 premiere followed that of Chopin’s concerto by less than two months.
