The Yale School of Music presents the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale in its first concert of the season on Friday, September 24 at 8 pm in Woolsey Hall (corner of College and Grove Streets, New Haven). Shinik Hahm will conduct the program, which opens with Rossini’s popular William Tell Overture. The eminent concert pianist Peter Frankl will join the orchestra for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major. The program will culminate in Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, a stunning orchestral illustration of unrequited love colored with dreams both joyful and macabre.

Peter Frankl, a professor at the Yale School of Music since 1987, has been hailed by the press as a “beguiling colorist” and “true artist.” This season, Frankl will celebrate his 75th birthday with four separate appearances at Yale, encompassing solo, chamber, and concerto repertoire by Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, and Bartók.

This concert opens the Yale Philharmonia’s 2010-11 season, whose highlights include two appearances under renowned conductor Peter Oundjian, performances of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde and Symphony No. 5, chamber concertos with distinguished soloists, and Brahms’s Symphony No. 4. A complete schedule is available at music.yale.edu/concerts.
