A night of the triumphant and sublime
Experience Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony - an immense and soul-stirring exposition on triumph over tragedy - alongside his brilliant “Emperor Concerto” on the instruments of the composer’s time played with vitality by Mercury and hear works renewed - fresh, invigorating, remarkable. Joining Mercury is Alon Goldstein, piano, who brings, “A beautifully balanced approach to the score, refined yet impetuous, noble yet spirited" (New York Times).
