JANÁČEK | Suite for Strings
CHERUBINI | Symphony in D major

BEETHOVEN | Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor


John O’Conor, piano
Maestro Andrew Sewell

John O’Conor’s gift for Beethoven never disappoints. Loved by our orchestra and audience alike, O’Conor is a statesman and musical icon. 

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor is gargantuan, so named for its grandeur and highly sophisticated form. This is Beethoven at his most intense, personal, and sublime. So much so that in this capacity we are treating it as the main course or the steak, putting it in the second half, more like a symphony, with Janáček and Cherubini as appetizers and a salad.
