Scandinavia is home to a rich musical history, and this concert includes Romantic era composers from three Nordic lands – Sweden’s Hugo Alfvén, Norway’s Edvard Grieg, and Finland’s Jan Silbelius. Each work on our program displays a distinctive style and attachment to the composer’s homeland. This concert introduces our audience to Sibelius’s youthful First Symphony – the first in the composer’s towering and highly personal symphonic legacy.
Norwegian born pianist Inger-Kristine Riber joins the Sammamish Symphony in Grieg’s beloved Piano Concerto. Riber has established herself as an active soloist, accompanist, and chamber musician, winning numerous artistic scholarships and grants. Riber will perform with the Norwegian ensemble BIT20 for a debut performance at the Ultima Festival in Oslo and on the main stage of the New Opera House in Oslo in the fall of 2013.
You can purchase your tickets at the door on the day of the concert or online from TicketWeb.
