In a season presenting all nine of Beethoven's symphonies, and all five of his piano concertos, we can't ignore his solo piano pieces, some of the most unforgettable music ever written. From the “Pathétique” with its echoes of Mozart to the “Eroica” Variations, using thematic material from his Third Symphony, to the innovative D-minor and the heroic and technically challenging “Waldstein,” this brief survey underscores yet again Beethoven's monumental musical genius. The internationally acclaimed virtuoso Evgeny Kissin performs these masterpieces. 

Please note: The Philadelphia Orchestra does not perform on this concert.

This concert is a co-presentation from Kimmel Center and The Philadelphia Orchestra.
