‘GRIEG'S ROMANTIC PIANO CONCERTO'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $20-$58.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra continues its search for a new conductor with a program directed by Fusao Kajima, the fourth of five candidates. Kajima, who helms the Bellevue Philharmonic in Bellevue, Wash., leads the ASO in Heitor Villa-Lobos' “Sinfonietta No. 1 (A memória de Mozart),” Antonín Dvorák's “Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88” and the centerpiece, Edvard Grieg's “Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 16.” Acclaimed Ukranian-born pianist Valentina Lisitsa guests on the piano concerto, which the ASO bills as a “beautiful melding of virtuosity and lyricism.” The ASO reprises its concert on Sunday at 3 p.m. Same place, same price.
