Additional Dates for this Program

For his CSO debut, Nicholas Angelich will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 (Emperor) — which he learned when he was just 14. “As time goes on,” he said, “I’m more and more fascinated with Beethoven. It’s hard to talk about it. Why are we fascinated by certain things? I think there is a universal element, a humanity in his music, which speaks to all of us in a very powerful way.” Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
