SCHUBERT/BERIO: Rendering BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5 (“Emperor”)
When Italian composer Luciano Berio approached the piano sketches for what might have become Schubert’s Tenth Symphony, he sought to “refresh the old colors without completely concealing the centuries of damage.” The result is Rendering, an extraordinary musical dialogue across the centuries. The dynamic and versatile Susanna Mälkki leads, and masterful pianist Garrick Ohlsson then joins the Festival Orchestra in Beethoven’s majestic “Emperor” Piano Concerto.
Performance begins promptly at its scheduled time. There is no late seating.
This performance is approximately one hour and 35 minutes long, with one intermission.

“Ms. Mälkki is a joy to watch and a technical whiz...Exuding energy, she conducts with kinetic gestures and incisive cues.” —New York Times
