Isaac Stern’s longtime friend and classical luminary Emanuel Ax is back to bring new life to Beethoven’s playful First Piano Concerto, nearly 225 years after its premiere. But first, buckle up for a 10-minute whirlwind tour with Louis Andriessen’s The nine symphonies of Beethoven. To close, Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra — arguably his most popular work — celebrates the orchestra’s full range of colors and emotions on a journey from the dark, ethereal opening bars to a euphoric finale.
