Under the baton of conductor Peter Jaffe, the Stockton Symphony Orchestra will perform Classics 5 featuring guest artist Stanislav Khristenko, pianist. Praised for his emotional intensity, charismatic expression, and brilliant technique, Ukrainian-born pianist Stanislav Khristenko is one of America’s most thought-provoking and eminent young artists. Stanislav Khristenko’s performances have captivated audiences on four continents since his first solo recital at the age of 11. A “poet of piano” (Le Soir), Mr. Khristenko has been praised in the media around the globe. New York Times reviewer Zachary Woolfe wrote that in “an impressive recital… (he) played with thoughtful lucidity and restraint.” Spanish El Pais wrote of his “precise technique, powerful sound and fingers of steel.” Promises to be an amazing concert! Concert Program: Chadwick – Jubilee from Symphonic Sketches | Tchaikovsky – Piano Concerto No. 1 | Shostakovich – Symphony No. 5.
