The Princeton University Orchestra presents its first concert of the 2022-23 season in a program featuring senior pianist Kyrie McIntosh ’23, winner of last year’s Concerto Competition, in Chopin’s beloved and virtuosic first piano concerto. The concert will also include Mussorgsky’s beloved Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite originally composed for piano of musical miniatures inspired by Victor Hartmann’s watercolors.

“[The second movement of the concerto] is intended to convey the impression one receives when the eye rests on a beloved landscape that calls up in one’s soul beautiful memories – for instance, on a fine, moonlit spring night.”

— Frédéric Chopin

Frédéric Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11

Modest Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition


Kyrie McIntosh ’23, from New York, NY, is pursuing both composition and mathematics at Princeton. In high school, Kyrie studied composition with Eric Ewazen at the Juilliard Pre-College, where he was a recipient of the Sidney E. Frank Scholarship. He also attended Boston University’s Tanglewood Institute as an ASCAP scholar, where he studied with Martin Amlin and Justin Casinghino, and participated in masterclasses with Nico Muhly and Missy Mazzoli. Kyrie has been a finalist for the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards three times, and his works have been performed at Merkin Concert Hall, Le Poussin Rouge, Symphony Space, Juilliard’s Paul and Morse Recital Halls, the Player’s Theater, the West Street Theater, Taplin Auditorium, and the Greenwich Arts Center. As a pianist, Kyrie has given solo recitals and has won several competitions, including the Rondo Young Artist competition, AADGT, and the Kaufman Music Center Concerto competition. Kyrie’s mathematical interests include algebraic topology, knot theory and number theory, and he is currently conducting research in the theory of quadratic forms.
