Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1 & 3
Sat / May 18, 2019 - 8:00PM
Two guest virtuosos join Dudamel for outstanding Beethoven concertos.
About this Performance
American pianist/composer Conrad Tao performs Beethoven’s delightful First Piano Concerto, and Italian virtuoso Beatrice Rana, who performed Tchaikovsky at the Hollywood Bowl in 2017, tackles Beethoven’s heroic C-minor Concerto.
Program Update: In order to ensure maximum recovery time from tendinitis of the left arm, pianist Lang Lang very much regrets that he can only proceed with two performances of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2, instead of the previously announced five concertos for the upcoming Lang Lang and Beethoven series. The following pianists will join Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic to perform the other concertos: Beatrice Rana, Conrad Tao (Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1 & 3), Yulianna Avdeeva, and Javier Perianes (Beethoven: Piano Concertos 4 & 5).
