A concert honoring the life of Peter Formanek

Fesjian, Cara: Iris Orchestra Commission
Mozart: Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat Major, No. 10
Dvořák: 
Symphony No. 9 in E minor,  op.95, “From the New World”

Two heavy hitters in the classical music realm join Iris Orchestra in March. Israeli pianists Inon Barnatan and Alon Goldstein have each performed with Iris in seasons past: this commemorative concert doubles the impact by bringing both as they band together to perform Mozart’s delightful Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat Major. The piece will be preceded by a work commissioned in memory of Peter Formanek, a passionate supporter of Iris whose passing in 2020 marks a deep loss.  In this new, post-COVID world, the program will appropriately conclude with a work that was one of Peter’s favorites: Dvořák’s New World Symphony.

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique” – Martha Graham
