Event Description

Conductor Christoph Eschenbach leads the Orchestra in a concert featuring Romantic greats Fanny Mendelssohn, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Johannes Brahms. Mendelssohn’s vivacious Overture in C opens the program with its serene introduction and buoyant allegro. Pianist Jan Lisiecki performs Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, a work beloved for being equal parts poetic and utterly radical. Brahms’ First Symphony is a labor of love that brings together twenty years of thought, two years of intense writing, and a turbulent journey through self-doubt.
