On the program

Anna Clyne: Stride
Robert Schumann: Piano Concerto
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”

Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony is a nature-inspired musical story, with each of the five movements depicting a different aspect of nature, such as a babbling brook, a thunderstorm, and a shepherd’s song. With a joyful and optimistic tone, the “Pastoral” Symphony is a celebration of nature’s beauty and power. Plus, Swiss-Canadian pianist Teo Gheorghiu – known for his thrilling playing, dynamic contrasts, lines of expression, leaps, runs, and repetitions – makes his debut with the Symphony to perform Schumann’s only Piano Concerto. Considered a huge talent, at the age of 18 he was the youngest recipient of the prestigious Beethoven Ring, awarded at Beethoven Fest in Bonn, Germany.
