Malcolm Bilson with CSO

Both the Symphony and the Chamber Orchestra were fortunate to have a number of distinguished guest artists to enrich our musical season. The Symphony Orchestra hosted Malcolm Bilson for the March [2005] concert in a performance of César Franck’s Symphonic Variations. Malcolm Bilson has been in the forefront of the period-instrument movement for over thirty years. Internationally renowned pianist/scholar and the authority figure on the fortepiano, Professor Bilson has performed with orchestras around the world. However this concert was a special treat as it was the first time in almost forty years that he has played on a modern piano with an orchestra in public.
