Anne-Marie McDermott, “a pianist who balances qualities of excitement and spontaneity with clarity and elegance” (“New York Times”), reunites with the SPCO for the first time since their fruitful collaboration at the 2022 Bravo! Vail Music Festival in Colorado. McDermott will lead the orchestra once again in a world premiere of Chris Rogerson’s “Samaa’”, a new expansion of his work by the same name that was previously recorded in Colorado. Two chamber works by French composers showcase the piano in chamber ensembles — an impressionistic concerto with strings by Ernest Chausson and a sextet with winds by Francis Poulenc that pendulates between liveliness and elegy.
