Beethoven's Emperor Concerto
Doors: 6:30 PM
Concert: 7:30 PM
Indulge in a night of musical grandeur as the CSO joins forces with internationally renowned pianist Alexander Schimpf for a harmonious dialogue between two monumental compositions that span the ages. Ludwig Van Beethoven's "Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 73, 'Emperor'' sets the tone, where the piano's regal melodies converse with the orchestra in a display of Schimpf’s virtuosic brilliance. Sergei Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, Op. 100 follows, seamlessly blending lyricism and modernity, traversing emotional depths from introspection to exultation.
