April 23, 2017

Beethoven cast a huge shadow over those who came after him, which is why Brahms produced his first symphony in middle age - he could hear the “giant marching behind him.” After sidestepping the conventions of Beethoven, Brahms ends with a Ninth-like finale that cannot fail to thrill! Chopin’s piano concerto, brilliant, virtuosic and exquisitely delicate, was praised by Schumann for bringing “the spirit of Beethoven into the concert hall.” Pianist Claire Huangci’s exceptional talents will breathe life into Chopin’s herculean concerto. Eckart Preu, conductor. Performances Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Single tickets on sale Aug. 25.
