BEETHOVEN + MOZART

NEC’s Jordan Hall

Critically acclaimed fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout makes his H+H directorial debut in Beethoven’s dramatic Third Piano Concerto. You’ll hear the composer speak from the heart, only now in a bold new voice. Soloist and orchestra recreate this new voice with their trademark sound that’s as astonishing today as it was in the creator’s day. Taking inspiration from Haydn, Mozart also tried a new approach in his Linz symphony: a majestic introduction announces that you’re in for something grand and sweeps you along to the celebratory conclusion, accompanied by spirited drumbeats.
