Arrive one hour before curtain for a Concert Prelude, featuring a Beethoven violin and piano sonata as well as Jeffrey Kahane’s witty anecdotes and interesting insights about music.

Description

Now 40-something, Joseph Swensen and Jeffrey Kahane toured and recorded as a successful violin and piano duo until both went on to stellar careers, Swensen as the principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and Kahane as international concert pianist and music director of the LA Chamber Orchestra.

For the holidays, they reunite and appear together for the very first time as conductor and pianist for an evening of Chopin, Beethoven and MacMillan.

Program:

  • James MacMillan: I (A Meditation on Iona)

  • Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor

  • Beethoven: Symphony No. 1 in C major
