National Symphony Orchestra: Langrée conducts Brahms's First / Hough plays Beethoven
With its grand orchestration and stormy, romantic movements, Beethovens Third Piano Concerto is a vital precursor to the composers heroic middle-period style, which the NSO explores later this season in Beethoven at 250. Stephen Hough effortlessly conquers the concerto, which demands remarkable mastery and range of color from the soloist. Brahmss radiant First Symphony and Julia Wolfes Fountain of Youth complete the program, making a thrilling NSO debut for conductor Louis Langrée, Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
