CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Wednesday, February 25, 2015 | 8 PM

Mahler Chamber Orchestra
Leif Ove Andsnes

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 owes much to the great Classical tradition, but the solo part’s virtuosity and emotional depth place it in a different realm. This is pure Beethoven, especially in the song-like Largo and the Rondo laced with earthy humor. Beethoven didn’t name his Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor,” but it seems appropriate for this noble work. Muscular chords vie with an equally insistent orchestra in its opening movement, one of grandest concerto movements ever written.
