About ROCO in Concert: Checkmate

ROCO’s In Concert series, which features the full 40-piece orchestra and live-streamed performances, kicks off September 22 with the world premiere of Maxime Goulet’s Checkmate, a chess game for piano and orchestra based on the legendary 1996 match where IBM’s “Deep Blue” computer defeated reigning world champion, Garry Kasparov. The piano part (played by the singular Lara Downes) represents Kasparov, while the orchestra plays the part of Deep Blue with the actual match projected above the stage in real-time.
