Pianist Garrick Ohlsson's "strength, sensitivity, and stylistic insight" (San Francisco Chronicle) is on full display as he performs Beethoven's Emperor Concerto led by San Francisco Symphony Conductor Laureate Herbert Blomstedt. The work's heroic and triumphant character stands in stark contrast to the tumultuous political backdrop of occupied Vienna where Beethoven lived and worked. Also on the program, a masterpiece of Scandinavian music, Stenhammar's Symphony No. 2.
