BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”
André Watts joins Marin Alsop and the BSO for a performance and discussion of Beethoven’s last piano concerto, the mighty "Emperor." Though the composer didn’t give it that name, it’s worthy of the title because of its majestic tone and heroic gestures. Its slow movement is also one of the most sublimely beautiful things Beethoven ever wrote.
