- Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58 listen
With concertos the name of the game this season, what better masterpiece to “discover” than the Romantic concerto that revolutionized the form, and who better to lead you on your journey than Jeffrey Kahane?
Learn what makes the Piano Concerto No. 4 an innovative tour de force. Delve into Greek mythology and hear how Beethoven may portray Orpheus taming the Furies. After the introduction, listen to the work with new ears as Kahane leads the Orchestra from the piano. In the words of The New York Times, “. . . in the Beethoven, with a concerto grand before him . . .Jeffrey Kahane seems] most fully in his element.”
“Some conductors are born educators, and Jeffrey Kahane is one of them.” (LA Opening Nights)
