What you need to know about this programme:
The immortal composer painstakingly etched his own fate through his music, restrained not even by hearing loss. Beethoven blockbusters Symphony No. 5 and the Emperor Concerto are showcased in this epic concert featuring pianist Inon Barnatan, named by the New York Times as “one of the most admired pianists of his generation.” This concert is part of The Year of Beethoven and opens with a new commission by Dorothy Chang inspired by Beethoven’s fifth symphony.
