This event was a delight from start to finish! It was the first time we had the pleasure to see the young, highly spirited and very capable James Gaffigan conduct. Wow! is all I can say! We will look forward to his upcoming face on the world...continued

Jeremy Denk, piano
“Thus Fate knocks at the door!” That’s how Beethoven described the harrowing motif that launches his majestic Fifth Symphony. my classic Beethoven promises a riveting musical experience: the gripping _Coriolan _Overture, the incisive musicality of pianist Jeremy Denk in the _Emperor _Concerto—a signature work of Beethoven’s “heroic” style—and the symphony that changed the landscape of Western music: Beethoven’s Fifth.
Beethoven – _Coriolan _Overture
Beethoven – Piano Concerto No. 5, _Emperor _
