Live from the Grant Park Music Festival, Wednesday at 6:30 pm


The Grant Park Music Festival welcomes Russian-American pianist Natasha Paremski for Wednesday’s season opener. She joins Carlos Kalmar and the Grant Park Orchestra for Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.2, a piece she jokes about on her Facebook page:

“deliriously fast and crazy loud.”
—Tchaikovsky
Ice pack, please.

The program includes Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem Francesca da Rimini and John Corigliano’s Tournaments.

Natasha Paremski asked one question of WFMT: “Would it be possible for my friends to listen in from around the world?

The answer is yes. The broadcast starts at 6:30 pm, CDT. Suzanne Nance hosts the concert on the radio and online at WFMT.com.
