Beethoven’s 5th & Liszt
March 23, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Claire Huangci, Piano
Kevin Rhodes, Conductor
L. v. Beethoven – Symphony No. 5, Op. 67, C minor
Franz Liszt – Piano Concerto No. 1, S. 124, E-flat Major
Franz Liszt – Piano Concerto No. 2, S. 125 A Major
Libby Larsen – Beauty Alone (Movement II from String Symphony No. 4)
The fateful four notes that comprise the famous motif of Beethoven’s 5th will reverberate through Symphony Hall like never before. The drama and beauty will be underscored by Libby Larson’s Beauty Alone (Movement II from String Symphony No. 4) – another piece our orchestra will play in recognition and celebration of great American women composers.
First introduced to the SSO when she was 16 as the winner of the National Chopin Competition, and fresh from her victory at the Géza Anda Competition, Claire Huangci returns to our orchestra poised to perform a truly herculean creative feat: two Liszt concertos in one concert!Buy Tickets
Maestro Kevin Rhodes invites you to the Hall at 6:30 p.m. for a lively 30-minute discussion about this evening’s concert.
