It was a young, desperate love that inspired this concerto by the teenage Frederic Chopin. Too shy to declare his feelings, he wrote: "I say to my piano what I would like to be saying to you…" Jan Lisiecki, just 18, performs this ardent declaration. These concerts also feature Janacek's blazing Sinfonietta, a spectacular showpiece for the Dallas Symphony brass, along with Brahms' Tragic Overture and Dvorak's The Water Goblin.
