Special guest artist Christopher Taylor brings incomparable talents to his interpretation of Beethoven’s final Piano Concerto, “The Emperor”. Described by the New York Times as “a dazzlingly virtuosic and thoughtful musician”, Taylor’s performances have been praised as “precise playing and interpretive conviction”, “dazzling”, “poetic” – a stunning performance”.
Also on the program, Mendelssohn’s bright and brilliant Italian Symphony No. 4 will complete this concert of master works combining inspiration, brains, and sheer joy.
