About This Performance
Beethoven the pianist revolutionized what it meant to be a public performer, creating the template of the artist as a culture’s creative conscience. Dudamel and Andsnes bring their acclaimed Beethoven cycle to a climactic conclusion with the “Emperor” Concerto and the Choral Fantasy, with its pre-echoes of the "Ode to Joy."
Come for: "…a sense of balance, of musicality, of understanding not only the notes themselves but the wider context – where these pieces stand within Beethoven’s output and a broader historical perspective, too." (Gramophone, reviewing the first CD of Andsnes’ Beethoven Journey)
And more: Dudamel also includes John Adams' enthralling first piece for chorus and orchestra, Harmonium, based on striking poetry by John Donne and Emily Dickinson.
