On March 13th, the FSO will present a local premiere, Avner Dorman's Piano Concerto, composed for and played by pianist Alon Goldstein, an FSO audience favorite.  The percussive nature of Dorman's composition creates its own atmosphere, which is complemented by the Borodin piece, which draws from the composer's Asian heritage.  Both pieces are enhanced by hearing them in combination with the Sibelius.

"Alon Goldstein, a young pianist with technique to spare, joined the FSO for Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3.  ... Goldstein was particularly impressive in the first movement's lyrical sections and the expansive parts of the following theme and variations.  The finale was filled with fireworks and fine rapport." – The Washington Post
