FANTASTIC! it was all I had hoped for! When those most-famous 4-notes of Beethoven's 5th Symphony hit your ears, all is good in this troubled world, if for only a few moments! The Boston Symphony Orchestra lived up to their reputation, as one of the best in the world! Thank you Goldstar.
Quotes & Highlights
“Abbado maintained a knife-edge tension throughout; even the lyrical passages had a restless ebb and flow, and the finale had an underlying urgency. Abbado’s attention to details of phrasing and colour was imaginative throughout, and he brought to the piece breadth, depth and ecstatic sweep.” — The Guardian

This performance will be conducted by Roberto Abbado, artistic partner of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and nephew of the legendary Claudio Abbado. The orchestra will be joined by pianist Peter Serkin for Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto, part of a new program which also includes Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 and Beethoven’s beloved Symphony No. 5.
