Praised by the New York Times for his “jaw-dropping technique,” pianist Charlie Albright makes his Kansas City debut on a free Discovery Concert. The first of Albright’s three all-Schubert recordings was released in 2016 to great acclaim; Schubert will be on his Kansas City program, along with Kapustin, Strauss and Chopin.
