Kansas City Symphony Classical Series

BEETHOVEN’S “EMPEROR” and WAGNER’S RING
June 1-3, 2018
Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center

A towering masterpiece of the classical canon, Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto earned that nickname for its unmistakably grand and noble qualities. While Beethoven composed the work when he was confronting deafness, the concerto still exudes pride and heroism — expansive, powerful music refusing to surrender to the misery Beethoven suffered during its composition. Wagner’s four-part series, The Ring of the Nibelung, is the pinnacle of operatic extravagance and indulgence. The Kansas City Symphony presents excerpts from Wagner’s Ring featuring some of the most gargantuan and thrilling episodes of instrumental music from the entire operatic repertoire.
