This program features Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4, a work tailor-made for the poetic and luminous playing of Emanuel Ax. In its extravagant story of a spurned lover’s imagined revenge and its vivid changes of mood, Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique is one of the key signposts of the Romantic imagination.
Pre-concert talk at 7pm
