Kirill Gerstein & Alan Gilbert perform Ligeti

Opposites attract in this iconic coupling. First, conductor Alan Gilbert leads the magnificent pianist Kirill Gerstein and an ensemble of all-star Festival musicians in a spectacular performance of the Ligeti Piano Concerto. The Miami String Quartet closes the program with one of the sparkling gems of the chamber repertoire, and the gorgeous melodies of Dvořák’s “American” String Quartet.
