Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

 Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra welcomes pianist Sara Davis Buechner and conductor Maximiano Valdés back to the Islands for a program of Gershwin, Beethoven and Ravel on Saturday, April 26, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 4 p.m. at the Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall. This will be the third program in the HSO’s Spring 2014 Halekulani Masterworks Series.

Buechner, who may well hold the world title for having the most piano concertos in her repertoire (more than 100!) and is noted for her interpretations of American and jazz-influenced works, will perform George Gershwin’s Concerto in F. More of a traditional, although jazzy, piano concerto than his earlier Rhapsody in Blue, which was actually orchestrated by fellow composer Ferde Grofé, the Concerto in F showcases Gershwin’s own mastery of orchestration.

Police officials say the woman was driving a moped in the Haleiwa-bound direction on Kamehameha Highway near the entrance to the resort when she veered into oncoming traffic and collided with a truck.

"For unknown reasons, the wife went wide across the double-sided line and hit a truck that was southbound on Kamehameha Highway," said Lt. Robert Towne of HPD's Traffic Division.
