This concert is part of Casual Fridays. In addition to TalkBack (a Q&A with the artists after the performance), you are invited to join the orchestra for drinks in BP Hall. Your first drink is on us. See all Casual Fridays concerts

Despite his status as a musical superstar at the time, very little is known about the creation of Beethoven’s final concerto, composed in 1809 and the only one of his piano concertos that he did not play himself; his deafness was too limiting by that time for public performance. How it got its nickname is only one of the unknowns, but it is hard to miss the noble grandeur of its musical ideas.

And more:

Ravel’s impassioned and sensual account of the famous pastoral lovers, conducted by a master of French orchestral color.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet will be signing CDs at the LA Phil Store following the performances on March 29th and March 30th.
