“Music begins where the possibilities of language end.” Jean Sibelius
- Brahms wrote his Piano Concerto No. 1 when he was just 25 years old. While not well received during his lifetime, it is now recognized as one of the greatest compositions for piano and orchestra.
- In a letter to Jussi Jalas on New Year’s Eve Day 1943, Sibelius wrote, “My second symphony is a confession of the soul.”
- Guest artist, Christopher O’Riley, recently appeared at the Pioneer Center on September, 10th 2017 to host a live recording of NPR’s From the Top presented by the Reno Phil and KUNR. The program featured local Reno violinist, Oliver Leitner.
