Once every four years, the Van Cliburn competition pits pianists from around the world against one another in one of classical music’s most prestigious competitions. To open the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra’s new season, gold medalist Yunchan Lim returns to Cowtown to deliver Schumann’s rapturous Piano Concerto, a work of rare sensitivity and appeal. FWSO Music Director Robert Spano also conducts Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 as well as the composer’s Academic Festival Overture, written as a thank you for an honorary degree.
