Michael Torke’s new piano concerto, Three Manhattan Bridges, will be premiered by the Albany Symphony on December 19, with Joyce Yang as soloist. Torke performed as soloist in his first piano concerto in 1994, which was also premiered by the Albany Symphony with David Alan Miller as conductor.
Torke talks about the association with Albany: “I am thrilled to have a long association with a great orchestra like the Albany Symphony. They bring a depth of understanding to their performances of my music, and David Alan Miller is a commanding, and at the same time, sensitive interpreter.”
Albany Records will be releasing a recording of Three Manhattan Bridges (Joyce Yang, Soloist and the Albany Symphony) along with Winter’s Tale, Torke’s new cello concerto that he wrote for Julie Albers and which The Albany Symphony premiered last season.
