BEETHOVEN’S EIGHTH and
PROKOFIEV’S PIANO CONCERTO NO. 3

February 17-19, 2017
Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center

In his Eighth Symphony, Beethoven brilliantly combines humor with his trademark manipulation of themes and an irrepressible momentum. Hindemith’s Ragtime spotlights the 20th-century German composer’s more playful, jazzy side. Russian composer Prokofiev, a superb pianist, was soloist in the 1921 world premiere of his Third Concerto. Prokofiev described the work as “devilishly difficult,” and without a doubt, it demands an astounding demonstration of skill by the piano soloist. Tickets for this Kansas City Symphony Concert start at $25.
