The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO) closes its 23-24 season with a lovely program featuring Lili Boulanger’s little known gem, D’un Matin de Printemps (Of a Spring Morning) and the monumental masterpiece, Johannes Brahms’s Symphony no. 1. Superlative young competition-winner Alexander Liu will also join the orchestra to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 21. Is Mozart’s concerto a little gem or a grand masterpiece? A little of both? Come hear and decide!

Alexander Liu is a 12-year-old pianistic prodigy studying at Juilliard Pre-College, under the esteemed Professor Orli Shaham. A Young Scholar of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation, Alexander’s journey in music commenced at five and a half years old. He has achieved notable success in prestigious competitions, including first place at the National Young Virtuosi Recital Competition (2023), the Philadelphia International Piano Competition (2023), and the XIII Chopin International Piano Competition (2022). Alexander has graced stages such as Isaac Stern Auditorium and Carnegie Hall, where he has performed over ten winner recitals. His memorable performance with the Sound Symphony Orchestra for Mozart’s Concerto No. 23 marked a significant milestone in his music journey. This talented young pianist continues to captivate audiences with his profound musicality and technical prowess.
