Charlie Albright

September 30, 2011

PT Young Artist in Residence

Pianist Charlie Albright has been in the studios all week. Today, he wraps up his stay as the newest PT Young Artist in Residence with one of his own improvisations and a transcription of Johann Strauss, Jr.'s, Blue Danube Waltz. Plus, the wacky mating call of the French composer: Hector Berlioz's bizarre love song to a woman he'd never met, his Symphonie Fantastique. We'll hear it from a concert by the Philadelphia Orchestra.
