Why See New York Philharmonic - Beethoven and Elgar?
Beethoven forms the focus of the new program
An elegant evening beckons this month as pianist Jonathan Biss joins the Philharmonic in a quadruple program that celebrates the works of both Beethoven and Elgar and as well as Andres and Berlioz. Biss' will be playing from his Beethoven project, Beethoven/5, the Piano Concerto No. 2. Conducted by Courtney Lewis, the program will also feature Berlioz's Selections from Romeo and Juliet, Andres' Piano Concerto No. 3 (The Blind Banister) and Elgar's In the South (Alassio).
This year Biss will release his long-awaited sixth volume of his nine-year, nine-disc recording cycle of Beethoven's complete piano sonatas. In addition, Biss co-commissioned five composers to write a series of brand-new piano concertos, each inspired by one of Beethoven's.
Performance date: 22 April 2017
