About the Concerto

From the Nashville Symphony website:
Be one of the very first to hear pop icon Ben Folds premiere his brand-new piano concerto, co-commissioned by the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Ballet and Minnesota Orchestra. Folds will bring his knack for memorable melodies and sophisticated musicianship to the stunning sound of a full symphony orchestra. The William Tell Overture — best known as the theme of The Lone Ranger — will add to the fun, while Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin and Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde will show off the exceptional musicians in our GRAMMY®-winning orchestra.
