On Sunday, May 24, 2009, the Lang Concert Hall at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania was packed for the presentation of Moses: A Concerto for Piano and Orchestra composed by Russian-born, Philadelphia-based composer David Finko. Describing Moses the concert, The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Classical Music Critic David Patrick Stearns wrote: “The concerto is full of broad statements expressed with an Old Testament fierceness by lower brass instruments.”
I wish I were there. Short of being part of the audience, today I will go to my local library to check out the CD. I need some “Old Testament fierceness” in my music.
