BEETHOVEN
EMPEROR
CONCERTO

Symphony Hall

Experiencing Beethoven’s epic Emperor and Schubert’s Great Symphony played with H+H’s expert virtuosity, vigor, and vitality is a revelation. It’s as though 200 years of dust have been blown away to reveal their original power, passion, and beauty. Even if you know Emperor, you haven’t felt it like this. In the hands of virtuoso pianist Robert Levin, dynamic conductor Richard Egarr, and our acclaimed Orchestra, performing on the instruments for which these pieces were composed, these works will sound utterly fresh as you savor their grandeur and poetry.
