Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto with Jonathan Biss
Part of: 2018-2019 Carnegie Hall Series
Due to an arm injury, pianist Paul Lewis must regretfully withdraw from this performance. Pianist Jonathan Biss will perform in his place.
Haydn’s craftsmanship, melodic mastery, and sharp wit inspired generations of composers after him, including Mozart and Beethoven. Bernard Labadie leads OSL in Haydn’s “Farewell” Symphony, the composer’s way of telling his boss that the court musicians wanted to return to their families after an unexpectedly long period of employment—after three bustling movements, it winds down to silence to deliver the message. Jonathan Biss joins OSL for Beethoven’s spirited Piano Concerto No. 2, and emerging soprano Ying Fang soars through Mozart’s melodically splendid concert aria “Non temer, amato bene.”
