Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Beethoven Piano Concertos 4 and 5?
A Duo Of Beethoven Piano Concertos
Two classical masterworks, two special guest soloists! The Los Angeles Philharmonic and its fearless Music Director Gustavo Dudamel invite concertgoers to feast their ear-teeth on Beethoven's timeless Piano Concerto No. 4 and No. 5, the latter of which is dubbed the Emperor Concerto. Acclaimed Russian pianist Yulianna Avdeeva joins the ensemble for the fourth, an innovative work that broke the traditional concerto format in favor of great intimacy, lyricism, serenity and almost improvisational poetry.
Celebrated Spanish classical pianist Javier Perianes will then join proceedings for the Emperor Concerto, Beethoven's last and most resplendent piano concerto. One of the most performed works of his five piano concerti, it premiered in 1811 and won immediate praise for its orchestral grandeur, bold melodies and heroic spirit. Listen out for the strikin opening movement, virtuosic solo passages and glorious, triumphant rondo finale.
