Music on Park Avenue is back! The popular series hosted by Scandinavia House and Per Tengstrand welcomes its audience back to Victor Borge Hall beginning in the fall of 2021. Beginning in February 2022, the chamber music group Opus @ Princeton University will return for the final four concerts of the season, continuing their popular performances with Tengstrand of piano concertos in chamber settings as well as chamber music works.
In tonight’s performance, Tengstrand and Opus will perform the concerto of concertos: the iconic beginning of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23,” one of the most popular tunes ever written. The musicians will perform Tchaikovsky’s entire first concerto from beginning to end, as well as a smorgasbord of chamber music pieces from Per Tengstrand and Opus.
Tickets to this event must be purchased in advance online at the link above; concerts will take place in Victor Borge Hall.
Music on Park Avenue will conclude with a performance on May 12.
The Music on Park Avenue concert series is supported in part by a generous grant from The Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation and in part by the Lynn Carter Fund of the ASF.
Thanks to a generous loan by Victor Borge’s grandson Finn, this concert will be performed on Victor Borge’s personal Steinway piano.
