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



  • Haydn – Symphony No. 93 in D Major
  • Bartók – Piano Concerto No. 3 in E Major
  • Beethoven – Symphony No. 5 in C minor

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.

This performance has been made possible in part through the generous support of the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation.
