Ax Plays Beethoven

8:00 PM, Verizon Hall

Beethoven is surrounded by British bookends in this concert led by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Haydn’s Symphony No. 92, the “Oxford,” earned its name because the great composer performed it on the occasion of receiving an honorary degree from the University. Emanuel Ax solos in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The story goes that at its premiere performance, Beethoven hadn’t had time to finish copying out the score, so he played most of the solo part from memory. Ax is sure to amaze in this concert favorite. Unlike his first three symphonies, Vaughan Williams’s Symphony No.

Mahler 5

8:00 PM, Verizon Hall

Gianandrea Noseda conducts another Philadelphia first: the tuba featured as solo concerto instrument in a subscription concert.

They worked closely together to shape the piece. She says he concluded that the existing solo tuba repertoire leaned more heavily on flash than soul, and she was very happy to help him correct that balance in this piece.
