About this Performance

The conductor takes on a new look at this performance as Rudolf Buchbinder performs a dual role as leader and pianist in this two-day, once-in-a-generation exploration of all five of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos. This performer takes on a rare and impressive feat as he wears many challenging hats over the course of one weekend.

One of the world’s most beloved composers may have had some dark motivations in composing these concerti, once articulating his “desire to embarrass those Viennese pianists, some of whom are my sworn enemies.” Experience the sounds of revenge in this unique concert program.
