Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART Piano Concerto No. 20, K. 466 Ludwig van BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 1 Courtney Lewis, conductor Haskell Endowed Chair Daniel Hsu, piano Mozart’s D minor Concerto marks the first of six staggering masterpieces for piano and orchestra written between 1785 and 1786. His stormiest concerto - and an omen of the Romantic Era - was regarded by the 19th-century masters as Beethoven-ish, the highest praise possible at the time. It’s a perfect pairing with Beethoven’s First Symphony, a work in which the first few moments already foreshadow that this giant was about to change everything. Van Cliburn Piano Competition-medalist Daniel Hsu joins Courtney Lewis and the Symphony in this spectacular season opener. This concert is part of the Florida Blue Classical Series and the David M. Hicks Mozart Piano Series.
