The Philadelphia Orchestra: Beethoven 2020 | The Emperor
Jonathan Biss, considered one of the great Beethoven pianists of our time, will bring his magisterial interpretation to Beethoven’s towering “Emperor” Concerto. Closing the evening is Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, which progresses from a somber beginning to an uplifting, triumphant march in the final movement.
The program will be conducted by Louis Langrée, the Music Director of the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center in New York and of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, who will be making his SPAC debut.
