Review from C.C.

Superb concert in SFS's Summer series; best of Beethoven's popular classics. Seats were pretty good, considering the price.

Description

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.
