Grand finale - City Loves
Astor Piazzolla – The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, for piano trio

The final night of any chamber music festival is always a crowd-pleaser. Tonight is no exception. With City Loves, we celebrate this festival's union of two cities with an invigorating program inspired by the travels of Piazzolla and Tchaikovsky. Watch out for a big finish that will have you shouting encore in your home.
