Brahms and Mozart

7:30 PM, Verizon Hall
David Afkham - Conductor
Seong-Jin Cho - Piano
Beethoven - Overture, Coriolan
Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466
INTERMISSION -
Brahms - Symphony No. 1

A pair of Philadelphia Orchestra debuts, by two rapidly rising stars: David Afkham on the podium and Seong-Jin Cho at the keyboard. Cho brings his prize-winning technique to Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20. Beethoven's stirring Coriolan Overture was inspired by a play about war and peace in ancient Rome. Brahms was daunted by Beethoven's towering legacy; that may be why it took him so long to finish his majestic Symphony No. 1. For almost 150 years, audiences have agreed it was worth the wait.

He's arranged a suite from Jake Heggie's opera Moby Dick (“a masterpiece of clarity and intensity”—San Francisco Chronicle).
