The brilliance of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3, with its electrifying cadenzas and lyrical brilliance performed by Sacramento native Parker Van Ostrand, is the midpoint of an evening that opens with Jessie Montgomery’s Records from a Vanishing City, inspired by an Angolan lullaby. Completing the program, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite, with its harmonic and rhythmic twists, is pure twentieth-century inventiveness and pure Stravinsky.
