South Dakota Pianist Eugene Gienger is closing the Black Hills Symphony Orchestra’s current season with one of the most strenuous piano compositions ever written. More than 50 minutes long, Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto is a powerhouse of emotion, requiring of the pianist years of practice and great physical strength. For today’s Dakota Digest, SDPB’s Victoria Wicks travels to Gienger’s Custer home to hear him play excerpts and to talk with him about his music.
