Performance Oklahoma






Louis Lortie and the OKC Philharmonic!


 The London Times, in describing his playing as "ever immaculate, ever imaginative", has identified the artist's "combination of total spontaneity and meditated ripeness that only great pianists have".  Joining the OKC Philharmonic in its sixth classics concert of the season, Mr. Lortie was the featured soloist in the second piano concerto of Ludwig van Beethoven.  The program, entitled Terror and Triumph, was offered on Saturday March 7th at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown Oklahoma City and also features the tenth symphony of Dmitry Shostakovich.  Mr. Lortie reveals his affection for collaborating with the Philharmonic, its extraordinary piano and for the concerto, an homage to Mozart, Haydn and Clementi, and a work of charm and humor coming early in the composer’s remarkable career.
