2:00 pm Verizon Hall
Jonathan Biss once declared himself “a fanatic for every note Schumann wrote.” Reap the benefits as he performs the composer's only piano concerto, strongly championed by his wife, Clara, who played the work's premiere in 1846. From its indelible opening theme to its thundering finale, the “Eroica” Symphony is one of Beethoven's most popular works. It simply must be experienced live; no one does it better than the Fabulous Philadelphians! The internationally acclaimed conductor Myung-Whun Chung is on the podium for this stirring program.

Immediately following the performance, join musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra for a Chamber Postlude. Free for all ticket holders in Verizon Hall.   For program details, click here
