Louis Lortie, “one of a half-dozen pianists worth dropping everything to hear” (The Daily Telegraph, London), will tackle the great Piano Concerto No. 5, Op. 73, in E-flat Major (the "Emperor" Concerto), one of Beethoven’s most admired and widely performed piano concertos.
The 100-year-old leading German orchestra will then treat us to a special performance of Symphony No. 7, Op. 92, in A Major. Beethoven once commented that this symphony was one of his best. Come decide for yourself.
