MOZART: Symphony No. 32 BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 3 SCHUBERT: Symphony in C major (“Great”)
Led by “exacting and exuberant” conductor Osmo Vänskä (New York Times), this monumental evening centers on Schubert’s “Great” Symphony, his final completed contribution to the form. Acclaimed Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder makes his Mostly Mozart debut in Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, an emotionally rich work that demands powerful, muscular playing.
Performance begins promptly at its scheduled time. There is no late seating.
For Avery Fisher Hall stage seating, all patrons must be seated by 7:55.
This performance is approximately two hours and 5 minutes long, with one intermission.
Pre-concert recital by Rudolf Buchbinder, piano, at 7:00 August 14: BEETHOVEN: Sonata No. 23 (“Appassionata”) August 15: BEETHOVEN: Sonata No. 8 (“Pathétique”)
“Exacting and exuberant...there is no denying that Mr. Vänskä has had enormous success.” —New York Times
