Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Groton Hill Music Center
Address: 122 Old Ayer Rd Groton
Featuring Guest Soloist: Misha Dichter, piano
  • Glinka:  Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla
  • Tchaikovsky:  Symphony No. 1 (“Winter Dreams”)
  • Rachmaninoff:  Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

World-renowned concert pianist Misha Dichter performs a beloved Rachmaninoff work on our new 9-foot Steinway concert grand (that he helped us choose!) And our winter theme is well-represented by one of Tchaikovsky’s earliest compositions.

Now in the sixth decade of a distinguished global career, Mr. Dichter remains one of America’s most popular artists, extending a musical heritage from the Russian Romantic School, as personified by Rosina Lhevinne, his mentor at The Juilliard School, and the German Classical style that was passed on to him by Aube Tzerko, a pupil of Artur Schnabel. He also studied composition and analysis with Leonard Stein, a disciple of Arnold Schoenberg.
