May 7-9: Jon Nakamatsu with the Santa Rosa Symphony at the Wells Fargo Center

The image is burned into any classical fan’s brain: the stark black-and-white profile, the young bush of hair, the piercing gaze downward at the keys. Yes, the cover photograph for Van Cliburn’s triple-platinum RCA Victor recording of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 is as iconic as it gets—and the piece, no less so. This weekend, pianist Jon Nakamatsu handles the famous concerto in a Russian program with the Santa Rosa Symphony, alongside Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Sophia Gubaidulina’s Fairytale Poem, on Saturday–Monday, May 7–9, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Saturday and Monday at 8pm; Sunday at 3pm. $28–$55. 707.546.8742.
