In 2020, music-lovers the world over celebrate the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, a composer whose work changed the very shape of music. In this program, Music Director Peter Oundjian begins a cycle of all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos, each performed by the award-winning Jan Lisiecki, whom Oundjian calls “one of the greatest piano talents of all time.” Beethoven’s First and Second Piano Concertos were both written as showpieces for the composer as the aspiring pianist was first making a name for himself in Austria.
